Virtue as the Art of Human Flourishing

In this episode of “Facts, Values, and Flourishing,” we’ll look at the nature of virtue in the context of a rational, life-based morality: virtue as the art of human flourishing.

We’ll consider the relationship of virtue and value. We’ll see how the two manifest in the proverb “God said, ‘Take what you want, and pay for it.’” And we’ll discuss a few of the basic virtues of Ayn Rand’s rational egoism, including the principles involved and the actions that these principles call for.

I hope you’ll join me for this episode, which airs on Thursday, September 20, at 9 PM Eastern Time.

And be sure to let your friends know about the series. Earlier episodes can be seen on Facebook and YouTube.
