May 6 2013 -- This is session 3 in the course Objectivism: A Rational Philosophy for the Hero in Your Soul . Because a human being has a specific nature, there are certain values every one of us needs to pursue, and certain ways of pursuing them—the virtues—we all need to use. Some of these virtues are exercised primarily within oneself; some pertain essentially to one’s relationships with others. In his webinar,  Alexander R. Cohen explores the nature of virtue and introduces the major Objectivist virtues.He indicates how virtues relate to survival, flourishing, and happiness. He shows that Objectivism’s brand of egoism calls for offering others benefits rather than harms, and that it is a very demanding moral code.
