DC Area Event: Andrew Bernstein on Selfishness in Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead

What: Andrew Bernstein on Selfishness in Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead

When: Thursday, May 1st, 8pm
Where: University of Maryland, College Park, ASY (Art-Sociology) room 2309

In her novel The Fountainhead, novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand fully dramatizes the moral theory of rational egoism - the theory which holds that it is each person's responsibility to choose his goals and values by use of his independent reasoning mind; and that it is his right to pursue these goals in quest of his own selfish, personal happiness. Dr. Andrew Bernstein explores how the plot and conflict of The Fountainhead convey this theme, including a detailed, in-depth analysis of the five major characters in the story.

The talk is sponsored by the Terrapin Objectivists and admission is free to the general public.
