More Description

Ayn Rand is well known for advocating egoism, but the substance of that egoism s instruction is rarely understood. Far from representing the rejection of morality, selfishness, in Rand s view, actually demands the practice of a systematic code of ethics. This book explains the fundamental virtues that Rand considers vital for a person to achieve his objective well-being: rationality, honesty, independence, justice, integrity, productiveness, and pride. Tara Smith examines what each of these virtues consists in, why it is a virtue, and what it demands of a person in practice.
