Ayn Rand’s Theory of Rights at Students for Liberty Conference


CB-8-13-11What: A lecture by Craig Biddle, editor of The Objective Standard and author of Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It

Where: Students for Liberty Dallas Regional Conference, University of North Texas

When: Saturday, November 12, 2011

Admission: FREE and open to the public (but space is limited, so register early)

Description: What are rights? Where do they come from? How do we know it? And what does this imply? Ayn Rand’s answers to these questions form the indispensible foundation of a fully free, fully civilized society. In this talk, Craig Biddle elucidates Rand’s theory of rights, examining its essential principles, showing why it is true, and differentiating it from traditional theories, including “God-given” rights, “government-granted” rights, and “natural” rights. Attendees will expand or fortify their understanding of the source, nature, and meaning of rights, thus enhancing their ability to engage in intellectual activism toward pure, laissez-faire capitalism.
