Defining Basic Moral Concepts (MP3 download)

By Peter Schwartz


While we should always be clear on the meaning of the concepts we’re using, this commitment to clarity is especially important with respect to concepts that the culture seeks to muddy. Today, the primary muddiers are the advocates of altruism, and their targets are concepts of morality. This talk examines the obfuscations, including the “package-dealing,” generated by altruists, and analyzes the valid and invalid definitions of crucial moral concepts.

This talk was recorded at the 2015 Objectivist Summer Conference in Charlotte, NC.
