Rand without Romanticism

  • P_Fritz

    I have an Objectivist leaning friend who has read only Rand’s philosophical works (Virtue of Selfishness, Ayn Rand Lexicon, etc). We have these great discussions as long as we’re discussing Aristotle or Egoism, but then if I mention a line from Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged he points out he hasn’t read those and it’s always kind of deflating.

    So so here’s my question: do you think someone can bypass Rand’s fictional works and still really fully understand and appreciate Objectivism? Or is there something about the fictional works that is essential to understanding Rand?
