In this lecture, which was given at the International Society for Individual Liberty's 1991 conference, David Kelley talks about Ayn Rand's contribution to the free-market individualist movement. He says that as Aristotle defined metaphysical individualism, the Austrian economists defined methodological individualism, and John Locke and other Enlightenment philosophers defined political individualism, Ayn Rand defined ethical individualism and cognitive individualism through her philosophy, Objectivism.

Kelley also answers an extensive list of questions from the audience about everything from epistemology to metaphysics. (Via )
