Fall Issue of TOS Now Online


The online version of the Fall issue has been posted to our website.

In connection with all the press surrounding the fiftieth anniversary of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged—from the New York Times article “Ayn Rand’s Literature of Capitalism,” to the Los Angeles Times piece “Ayn Rand’s Epic Storytelling,” to Lionsgate’s selection of a director for the Atlas Shrugged movie—it is my pleasure to present Andrew Bernstein’s essay “Transfiguring the Novel: The Literary Revolution in Atlas Shrugged.” Bernstein examines Rand’s dramatization of the novel’s plot-theme, her use of literary techniques, and the nature and significance of key figures in the story, showing how Rand employed such elements to tap the full potential of this supremely conceptual art form, and shedding new light on Rand’s literary genius.

Also in this issue are “The Morality of Moneylending: A Short History” by Yaron Brook (which is accessible to all for free) and “How to Analyze and Appreciate Paintings” by Dianne Durante (which is accompanied by fifteen color images of the paintings discussed).
