Ayn Rand's rational egoist ethic is based in a fundamental revision of the traditional view of ethics.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the Objectivist virtue of pride, which supports the acquisition of a robust, fact-based self-esteem and rejects self-sacrifice at the root.

In this webinar, recorded on June 29, 2011, William R Thomas discusses pride as "the first and last of the virtues." The webinar considers in what sense a proud person is “arrogant.” Is pride competitive? It looks at why self-esteem requires competence and moral rectitude.
