Craig Biddle to lecture at George Mason University

On Thursday, April 3, 2003, at 7:30 p.m. in Johnson Center Assembly Room E, the George Mason University Objectivist Club presents a live talk:

“The Morality of Life: An Introduction to the Principles and Implications of Ayn Rand’s Ethics" by Craig Biddle.

This lecture explains and concretizes the basic principles and broad implications of the Objectivist ethics. The discussion ranges from why man’s life is the standard of moral value, to why pure capitalism is the only moral social system; from why genuine egoism is factually moral, to why religious terrorists are committed altruists; from the supreme role of reason in human life and happiness, to the corresponding nature, source, and crucial role of one’s emotions; from the essence of moral virtue, to the fundamental requirements of a civilized society.

Craig Biddle is the author of Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It and a senior policy analyst with the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism.

This event is open to the general public. It is free for those with a GMU ID, a $5 donation to the GMUOC is suggested for those without a GMU ID.
