Ayn Rand

...Ayn Rand was born Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum in St. Petersburg, Russia on February 2nd, 1905. She produced many works of fiction within her life and is applauded for the cultivation of her philosophical system-Objectivism. Ms. Rand passed away in 1982; her writing and ideals continue to influence society, literature, and surprisingly, the video game industry. After reading Her Second Career and Good Copy, it is easy to see why this author is held in such high esteem. Despite the tone of the stories being very different, the concept of wealth, the behavior of the main characters, and the traits of Ayn Rand's philosophy are all shared. While Her Second Career takes place in the glitzy scenes of Hollywood and Good Copy in the small-town of Dicksville, Ayn Rand does a fantastic job of conveying the influence of wealth no matter the setting. The characters in both stories run the gambit on the socioeconomic scale of the haves and the have-nots. Claire Nash lives a lofty life with "a palace in Beverly Hills and two Rolls Royces" pg. 112 while Laury McGee resides in an old apartment building. It is not until Ms. Nash undertakes Winston Ayer's challenge that she is forced to understand the struggles of aspiring actresses and the financial hardships endured in pursuit of their dreams. In Good Copy, it is not until Mr. McGee has kidnapped Ms. Winford that he receives his crash course in economics. It is obvious to the reader that Laury is aware of Ms. Winford's value based......

Ayn Rand

...1. Is Rand correct in saying that if you accept altruism, then you end up with lack of self-esteem and a lack of respect for others? I opined that Rand is incorrect in saying this. Altruism, according to Rand, is “willing to sacrifice your life for others.” This is consistent with the dictionary definitions of altruism such as “unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others.” By accepting altruism, a person showed that he has respect for the value of life. On the contrary, studies have shown that practicing altruism enhances personal well – being and affects the community positively as a whole. And because when we give, without expecting return is true charity. To some extend; due to vested interest, people are more willing to go the extra mile to help their family and friends as they are likely to suffer if their friends and family is at risk. However, it has nothing to do with neither lack of self-esteem nor lack of respect for others. 2. Is Rand criticizing ideal or reciprocal altruism? Do you think that she would differentiate between the two? Would you? It seemed that Rand is criticizing reciprocal altruism. It refers to the human social idea and expectation that if a person performs an altruistic act, other people will perform altruistic acts in return. She argues that to sacrifice oneself for another person will result in a threat to one’s existence and helping other is not a moral duty or obligation. However, I disagree, as I know that, “no man......

Critical Think Rand Essay

...1. Is Rand correct in saying that if you accept altruism, then you end up with a lack of self-esteem and a lack of respect for others? I do not believe that Rand is correct in saying this. Accepting altruism does not mean that you have a low self-esteem or a lack of respect for others. I see it as quite the opposite. A person accepting altruism has the utmost respect for other humans. By acting in a altruistic or selfless way, by saving a drowning stranger for example, a person is showing his or her respect for the value of life. Just because we don’t know the person in danger doesn’t mean that they don’t have a family or loved ones that would feel pain if that person were to die (or drown as in my example). 2. Is Rand criticizing ideal or reciprocal altruism? Do you think that she would differentiate between the two? Would you? Rand seems to be criticizing reciprocal altruism. I think that Rand would differentiate between the two but would have more of an understanding or willingness to follow ideal altruism. I would differentiate between the two and I feel that a reciprocal altruism is more on my side of the board. I do not agree with it 100% but I can look back and find instances where I did something only because I would want someone to do it for me in the future. 3. Comment on the following quotation: “The proper method of judging when or whether one should help another person is by reference to one’s own rational self-interest and one’s own......

Rand Report – R 609

...Rand Report R609 was commissioned by US department of defense in 1967, published in 1970 and is considered seminal work in area of Information Security. Rand Report is relevant now in 2012. Rand Report points that securing computer is not enough and it is necessary to secure data as well. The French have a saying – ‘Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose’. What this means minus the italics and in plain good old English, is ‘The more things change, the more they stay same’. One does not want to get into a detailed discussion around that saying. Let us get to brass tacks, in context of the subject of this article – Rand Report R 609. In October 1967 a task force was organized by the Advanced Research Projects Agency, USA to recommend computer security safeguards that would protect classified information in multi-access, resource-sharing computer systems. The report of the task Force was published by The Rand Corporation in February 1970 for Department of Defense in USA. This is Rand Report R 609. What is remarkable that Rand Report R 609 made recommendations that would be applicable even today in 2012. Hence the reference to the French proverb – the more things change, the more they stay same. Computers, Internet, Telecommunication have come a long way since 1970. However Rand Report R 609, is as valid in today’s era of tablets as much as it was in era of huge mainframes. Rand Report R 609 is so seminal a work in area of information security, that academic courses...

Hobbes, Rand, and de Waal Study Questions

... Rand 1. I do not think Rand is correct in saying that if you accept altruism, then you end up with a lack of self-esteem and a lack of respect for others. Just because altruists believe they are morally obliged to benefit others doesn’t mean they do not respect those others. Respecting others and having high self esteem may be the sole reason why people act in an altruistic way, they respect everyone in the same way. 2. I would not say Rand is criticizing ideal or reciprocal altruism; she is more criticizing the justification behind why people reciprocated or the order they place their ideal in. I believe that she combines the two because her point is that one should reciprocate altruism in the order they place their ideals that make them happy. I somewhat agree with Rand so I would not differentiate the two. 3. If this approach were implemented then socially those who were liked the most by others would be the survivors and politically those who were liked by people with the most money would be in charge and be well off. In this approach it is pretty much all about who is liked the most because those people will have others doing the most for them. 4. Rand would evaluate the theory that asks us to maximize happiness for the maximum number or people based on if that makes the doer happy or not and is high up in a persons hierarchy of values. If it benefits a person to put more peoples happiness over a lesser then they should do it according to Rand......

Ayn Rand Theory

...Objectivism This video discusses about Ayn Rand philosophy which claims that the highest moral purpose is the achievement of one’s own happiness. This philosophy is known as Objectivism, which is mainly based by objective absolute with the concept that reality exists as an objective reality, the reason to guiding man’s action and basic means of survival, self-interest where each man is an end to himself and not the means for others through sacrifices and lastly capitalism where men deal one another as traders who voluntary exchange for mutual benefits. Her philosophy also mentioned that morality is proved by means of logic and man needs a rational morality which is not based on faith, emotions and etc, but only on reason. Rand further explained that man has to hold on reason as his only guide to action and live by independent judgement of his own mind, Ethic of Emergencies Theory The Ethic of Emergency Theory is based on Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism. This theory challenges the understanding of altruism where it argued about the self-interest of a man who she believes that the highest moral purpose is to pursue own happiness. She mentioned that altruistic persons suffer from lack self-esteem, failing to respect others, have sceptical morality and pessimistic idea of existence. She also pointed out that this people are those who did not value their own existence as they sacrifice themselves for others sake. Rand also pointed out her extreme opinion that altruistic......

Paul Rand Research Paper

...Pragyaditya Mukerjee Prof Cirone Paul Rand Information 5/19/2014 Paul Rand Paul Rand: A Brief Biography PAUL RAND (BORN PERETZ ROSENBAUM, AUGUST 15, 1914 – NOVEMBER 26, 1996) was a well-known American graphic designer, best known for his corporate logo designs. Rand was educated at the Pratt Institute (1929-1932), the Parsons School of Design (1932-1933), and the Art Students League (1933-1934). He was one of the originators of the Swiss Style of graphic design. From 1956 to 1969, and beginning again in 1974, Rand taught design at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Rand was inducted into the New York Art Directors Club Hall of Fame in 1972. He designed many posters and corporate identities, including the logos for IBM, UPS and ABC. Rand died of cancer in 1996. Early life and education Peretz Rosenbaum was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1914. As Orthodox Jewish law forbids the creation of graven images that can be worshiped as idols, Rand’s career creating icons venerated in the temple of global capitalism seemed as unlikely as any. It was one that he embraced at a very young age, painting signs for his father’s grocery store as well as for school events at P.S. 109. Rand’s father did not believe art could provide his son with a sufficient livelihood, and so he required Paul to attend Manhattan’s Harren High School while taking night classes at the Pratt Institute, though “neither of these schools offered Rand much stimulation.” Despite studying at Pratt and......

How Do the Narrative Resolution and Climactic Revelations in Dead Man’s Curve Cause the Audience to Re-Evaluate the Meanings Communicated by the Overall Narrative Structure, Using the Robert Mckee Model and Making

...between Tim and Chris. From the very start of the film the audience acknowledges that Tim and Chris are plotting to kill their roommate Rand by attempting to make it look as though Rand has committed suicide. The whole reason for the plot is so they both get straight A’s and go to the University of their dreams. The McKee Narrative Model looks at the most important stages in a movie. These stages include; the inciting incident, progressive complications, crisis, climax and a resolution. The inciting incident is an event that happens which sets off the story. In this case the inciting incident is the plot to kill Rand and make it look like a suicide which is being planned out by Tim and Chris to gain straight A’s. The initial reason why Rand was chosen to be killed by Tim and Chris is because as a character he is presented in a fairly rude and harsh way. For example the disrespect towards Natalie and the general poor manners he has towards most things. Progressive complications are events which make things worse in the story. In this plot between Tim and Chris a progressive complication is the death of Natalie after she jumped off the cliff after Rands supposed suicide. This is a complication as her death wasn’t intended in Tim and Chris’ plot. Another complication which is revealed in the plot between Tim and Chris is the fact that Rands body was never actually found after his supposed suicide. From Tim and Chris’ this is a major problem as he is most likely still alive,...
