The 1959 Mike Wallace Ayn Rand Interview (video)

Uncategorized / Misc

I’m no fan of Ayn Rand, but I recommend this video as an introduction to Rand’s Objectivism:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouBZ-YqOnsU

YouTube -- 1959 Mike Wallace / Ayn Rand Interview

Here’s my comment on this video: http://www.youtube.com/comment?lc=qsrjM6kdoUk4jFCzgwgesYOR7XOmR8qrJvVPYzotPS0

I’m no fan of Rand’s Objectivist philosophy. But her thinking is clear and this interview makes an excellent introduction. This video gets my strong thumbs-up.

But Objectivism starts with a false premise, thus leads to a false conclusion. The false premise is rejection of a human soul and the innate value of that soul; so naturally her conclusion is that rational thought alone is how human value should be judged.

Valuing soul and rationality BOTH together form a human’s total value.
