Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead

Post by TmDurn7 » Thu Jan 04, 2007 7:29 pm

I'm of the opinion that this should be read by everone who considers themselves an artist and that it rather strongly asserts a philosophy of creation that seems almost undeniable. It's one of those books that, despite reading it years ago, i think of it almost everyday.

I'm wondering other people's thoughts on this. There's a decidedly Nietzscheian undertone to her philosophy and there are several things done by the main characters that would in the common morality be considered absolutely horrible- things which the book asserts as right.

Thoughts? Anyone out there hate this book and/or objectivism?
