Society & Culture:Philosophy
Rob Tracinski offers a brief overview of how Ayn Rand offered a rational, secular basis for morality, in contrast both to the religious arguments of the conservatives and to the subjectivism of secular intellectuals. Topics covered include: how to explain Ayn Rand's argument in seven minutes, how defenders of religion rely implicitly on a secular basis for morality, how Ayn Rand's rational approach to morality is liberating, and what to do if Bernie Sanders tries to run you down in a truck.
This is part of a new series within Salon of the Refused offering short explainers and longer conversations about the distinctive contributions of Ayn Rand's philosophy.
