What Are Rights and Where Do They come From?

Harry Binswanger

Presented at: Philosophy for Living on Earth

Date: Sep 07, 2019

Join special guest Harry Binswanger for this entry in the series of Ayn Rand Institute webinars on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism and its application to current issues. His topic is the one principle on which our very lives depend: the principle of Individual Rights. This concept—which the United States of America was based upon—has now vanished from the public understanding with tragic results. In his discussion, Binswanger will present the Objectivist theory of what rights are (their metaphysical status), how we establish them (their epistemological status) and what they mean in political practice.
Harry Binswanger explores another one of life’s big questions: What Are Rights and Where Do They Come from?
