In this fourth video of a four-part seminar, Craig Biddle shows that, whereas egoism (the morality of self-interest) underlies and gives rise to the principle of individual rights, altruism (the morality of self-sacrifice) undermines and contradicts the principle of rights. Mr. Biddle then closes the seminar with a discussion of the difference between objective rights and “natural” or “intrinsic” rights.
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.
