Peikoff has published *two* books so your claim that someone lent you

"Philosophy studies the *fundamental* nature of existence, of man, and
of man's relationship to existence. As against the special sciences,
which deal only with particular aspects, philosophy deals with those
aspects of the universe which pertain to everything that exists."
