The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism is a 1964 collection of essays and papers by Ayn Rand and Nathaniel Branden. Most of the essays originally appeared in The Objectivist Newsletter, except for "The Objectivist Ethics", which was a paper Rand delivered at the University of Wisconsin during a symposium on "Ethics in Our Time". The book covers several issues of the Objectivist philosophy of Ayn Rand. Some of its themes include the identification and validation of egoism[1] as a rational code of ethics, the destructiveness of altruism, and the nature of a proper government.
