Join us for our next featured event—“Benevolence, Goodwill and the Rationally Selfish Life with Dr. Aaron Smith.” Ayn Rand observed that people often associate benevolence, kindness and goodwill toward others with unselfishness and morality, while associating selfishness with immorality and a lack of concern for other people. Rand’s viewpoint, however, is radically different. Not only does Rand think that there’s nothing benevolent about altruism, she rejects the notion that selfishness entails a lack of concern for others. So what is the relationship between benevolence and goodwill toward others and the rationally selfish life she advocates? Why does Rand think that altruism is actually incompatible with authentic benevolence and goodwill toward others? And what is the significance of Rand’s unique perspective for your own life and relationships?
