Ayn Rand is well known for advocating selfishness, yet the substance of that selfishness is rarely understood. This presentation will explain some of the pivotal features that distinguish Rand’s ideal: a virtuous egoist.

Dr. Smith will outline why a person should be an egoist, the particular kind of egoism that Rand does and does not commend, and the kinds of virtues that a person must exercise in order to actually advance his self-interest. Along the way, she will differentiate Rand’s egoism from hedonism, materialism, and predation, and indicate how moral virtues such as honesty and justice—when properly understood—are indispensable to a person’s genuine well-being.
