The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism
By Ayn Rand
Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds man's life—the life proper to a rational being—as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature, with the creative requirements of his survival, and with a free society.
