Patrick M. O'Neil and David Osterfeld have offered some criticisms of our natural end interpretation and defense of Rand's ethics. This essay is a rejoinder to these criticisms. It consists of two parts: (I)a reply to O'Neil and (II)a reply to Osterfeld. In the case of the latter, we will confine ourselves to commenting only on those statements which constitute criticisms of our position. We will not discuss Osterfeld's own views regarding the foundation of ethics.
