In this third video of a four-part seminar, Craig Biddle shows how Ayn Rand’s ethics—including her demonstration that life is the standard of moral value, her validation of the morality of self-interest or egoism, and her demonstration of the fact that physical force used against an individual precludes him from acting on his basic means of living (the judgment of his mind)—gives rise to the principle of individual rights: the principle that each individual morally must be left free to act on his own judgment for his own sake.
Craig Biddle writes and lectures on philosophical and political issues from an objectivist perspective, Objectivism, which is the philosophy created by Ayn Rand. He is editor of The Objective Standard, a journal of culture and politics, and author of Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It.
