Rand fuses her philosophy, Objectivism, with the contrasting aesthetic ideals and gritty reality of buildin As an architecture student with no field experience, I can’t testify to the accuracy of this book.

One is a statement of Ayn Rand’s lacking writing skills and reprehensible moral philosophy. Roark spoke to men who he chose to listen to him. This was my 2nd time reading it, and I liked it about as much as a did when I was I think the concept of selfishness for the greater good is fascinating, as do lovers of Ayn Rand works.


The Fountainhead shows a very true if not menacing picture of how evil altruism can be. Both she and Galt are a matched pair, similar in philosophies, drive and dedication, but different in their approach. I think Wynand is a fresh breath in the black and white world of Ayn Rand.

Add Ayn Rand to this and you suddenly have the ingredients for a self-perpetuating sense of victimhood and entitlement. The titles of both are just ambiguous enough to make you assume Unlike Brave New World, reading this book is in itself an act of bravery.

She exhibited no personality or thought of her own and was perfectly compliant with everything everyone wanted from her As re who has done development work in West Africa and also worked in non-profit and in corporate philanthropy, I recognize Toohey and his corruption and evil and his hypocrisy is sadly very realistic.
