SAT Aug 15 – Harmony of Interests: Fact or Fiction

WHEN:
SATURDAY, August 15, 2009 7:00 PM

TOPIC:
The Harmony of Interests: Fact or Fiction
Talk by Jackie Hazelton

DESCRIPTION:
In the first essay in The Virtue of Selfishness titled The Objectivist Ethics,
Ayn Rand wrote, “The Objectivist ethics holds that human good does not
require human sacrifices and cannot be achieved by the sacrifice of anyone to
anyone.  It holds that the rational interests of men do not clash–that there
is no conflict of interests among men who do not desrie the unearned, who do
not make sacrifices nor accept them, who deal with one another as traders,
giving value for value.” (p. 31 in the paperback edition) This principle has
come to be known as the harmony of interests.  But is it true?  Jackie
Hazelton will share her thoughts on the subject.

You may want to review the short essay The ‘Conflict’s of Men’s Interests also
in the Virtue of Selfishness.
