Ética e valores morais

"The first question is not: What particular code of values should man accept? The first question is: Does man need values at all? - and why?"
Ayn Rand

"Many of them [the philosophers] attempted to break the traditional monopoly of mysticism in the field of ethics and, allegedly, to define a rational, scientific, nonreligious morality. But their attempts consisted of trying to justify them on social grounds merely substituting society for God"
Ayn Rand
