The Fountainhead Objectivism

Satisfactory Essays
The philosophy of objectivism is to be selfish for yourself and to work hard to achieve a life of purpose. Howard Roark, the main character in Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead is the perfect personification of this philosophy. Rand made Roark to be the ideal man based on her own beliefs. Ayn Rand's immoral ideology offers pursuing your own happiness as your highest moral aim and not caring for how other's feel about your own actions. Objectivism adheres strictly to the path of rational self-interest that is to benefit of every human to seek his own pursuits alone. Rand doesn’t believe that a person should in any way sacrifice others for himself, but she rejects any form of moral altruism. The novel represents objectivism in all its iniquitous glory.
