Objectivism conceives of ethics as a practical code to guide our actions. Is this what ethics is? (Many traditions do not agree.) Why do humans need such a code? What do these facts imply about the content of ethics? This session will explain the distinction between values and virtues and discuss why we need principles. We will see that integrity is essential to ethics both as a matter of personal virtue and in the logical and factual consistency that ethics itself must have.
