Reproduction and the Objectivist Ethics

Gregory Salmieri

Presented at: OCON 2022

Date: Jul 05, 2022

The Objectivist ethics is grounded in the nature of life. Spanning meta-ethics to politics, this talk surveys the implications for this ethics of an aspect of life about which Rand said little: reproduction. Topics include what it means for an organism’s life to be its ultimate value, whether (and when) having children is egoistic, and the rights of parents and children.
