The Fountainhead

Phantasy that come up from the philosophical legacy of Ayn Rand developed in the forties and fifties known as objectivism and whose main outreach work, “The Fountainhead”, borrowed the language of architecture.
Rand’s philosophy declined in the period of the postwar era but far away from disappearing resurfaced with greater force in the early nineties. According to the Congress Library one of his books, “Atlas Shrugged”, was the second most influential book in the United States, second only to the Bible. And the group most influenced by his epic heroism and morality based on selfishness were the entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs creators of computers, biotechnology, software, internet and digital networks.
