Book Reviews by Nathaniel Branden

Nathaniel Branden reviewed lot of books during the period when he was a major force in Ayn Rand’s philosophy circle during the 1950s and 1960s. Some of his book reviews have been published online by Roger Bissell in the “Nathaniel Branden Corner” at the Objectivist Living forum.

The books to which Branden introduces the readers are, I think, some of the best contemporary works in philosophy, psychology, history and economics. These books are of great interest.

I have learned about several important books after reading Branden’s reviews in the Objectivist Living forum. I read the books by Mortimer J. Adler, Arthur Koestler, Brand Blanshard and a few other writers because I was influenced by Branden’s comments on these works.

Every book review by Nathaniel Branden is not available in the Objectivist Living page. But thanks to Roger Bissell, Branden’s reviews of some of the most important books can be found here.  Bissell has also posted a complete list of the books that Branden reviewed. This list is quite useful for learning about the books that were being read by the philosophers in Ayn Rand's circle during the 1950s and 1960s.
