Moral rights and political freedom by Tara Smith ( Book )
10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seeking a way out of today's bewildering rush of rights claims, Tara Smith's Moral Rights and Political Freedom offers a systematic account of the nature and foundations of rights. The book carefully elucidates what political freedom is and demonstrates why it should be protected by rights. Smith's thesis is that rights are teleological: respect for freedom is necessary for individuals' flourishing or eudaimonia. Smith illustrates how many alleged rights would actually undermine that objective. Her decisive refutation of the assumption that conflicts between rights are inevitable-demonstrating
Viable values : a study of life as the root and reward of morality by Tara Smith ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Viable Values examines the most basic foundations of value and morality, demonstrating the shortcomings of major traditional views and proposing that morality is grounded in the objective requirements of human life. Smith argues that morality depends on a proper understanding of the concept of values, and that values depend on the alternative of life or death. She proposes that human beings need to be moral in order to live, explaining how life is the standard of morality, how flourishing is the proper end and reward of living morally, and how an intelligent egoism is the path to flourishing

Ayn Rand and the virtuous egoist by Tara Smith ( )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Any Rand is well known for advocating egoism, but the substance of that egoism's instruction is rarely understood. Far from representing the rejection of morality, selfishness, in Rand's view, actually demands the practice of a systematic code of ethics. This book explains the fundamental virtues that Rand considers vital for a person to achieve his objective well-being: rationality, honesty, independence, justice, integrity, productiveness, and pride. Tracing Rand's account of the naturalistic ground of value and the harmony of human beings' rational interests, Tara Smith examines what each of these virtues consists in, why it is a virtue, and what it demands of a person in practice."--BOOK JACKET
