Ayn Rand’s essay The Objectivist Ethics is perhaps the most comprehensive presentation of the fundamentals of her philosophy in a single essay. It covers the cardinal virtues identified by Rand, the cardinal values from which they derive, the standard that is the basis of all value, and the reason why that is the standard.
Rand called Objectivism “a philosophy for living on earth.” We will delve into Rand’s theory in depth, and examine the practical application of it.
