New Issue of 'Navigator'

The latest issue of The Objectivist Center’s monthly journal Navigator is out.
In ‘The Problem of Animal Rights,’ I discuss and critcize the arguments that philosophers have made in favor animal rights.

I think that the proper basis for individual rights?which I take to be Ayn Rand’s theory of rights?excludes extending rights or legal protections to animals…. This article will simply describe that theory and then employ it to rebut arguments that claim an extension of rights to animals is morally required.

Also in this issue, Robert Campbell reviews Owen Flanagan’s The Problem of the Soul in ‘What Does Science Say about the Mind?‘ And in ‘John Rennie: Enlightenment Engineer,’ Roger Donway profiles the man who rebuilt London Bridge.
