“Egoism in Nietzsche and Rand” at JARS

jars10_2cover-150x229My lengthy journal article entitled “Egoism in Nietzsche and Rand” [pdf] is now publicly available for free at the Journal of Ayn Rand Studies‘ site.

The abstract: “Philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche and Ayn Rand are often identified as strong critics of altruism and arch advocates of egoism. In this essay, Stephen Hicks argues that Nietzsche and Rand have much in common in their critiques of altruism but almost nothing in common in their views on egoism.”

See also Professor Lester Hunt’s rejoinder [pdf] to my essay, which appeared in the same tenth anniversary Nietzsche and Rand special issue.
