Not a code for a rational animal Not a philosophy for living on Earth A nature-driven description of an archetype selfishness But this view does not tell you what actually constitutes your self-interest. The film recognizes the difference of man from the animal, but does not recognize that man needs an additional philosophy to determine man’s rational values.
