About the Author

Tara Smith is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Texas.


Smith writes in very clear, engaging language, refreshing and enjoyable. Good index. Recommended. * CHOICE *
Smith undertakes the meta-ethical part and does a commendable job of fleshing out Rand's ideas. * Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association *
To my mind, this is one of the most interesting works in ethics to have appeared in a long while. Tara Smith's book ought to win many new adherents to the proposition that morality should be in the service of life, and not the reverse. -- Lester H. Hunt, University of Wisconsin-Madison
