Excellent, I am glad there are at least a couple of fans of her here. Her books are truly timeless and very telling.

The reason some people hate Rand is because her Philosophy is in stark contrast to ALL the usual philosophy of the past 2000 years (with one exception in Aristotle). They hate her becuase she calls it how it is, and evil most of all thrives in the dark and hates to be called what it is, as it functions on the principle of evasion.

She is one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century.  There is no LOL there.

Yeah, I agree that that critique of Ayn Rand is pretty weak.  There are far more sophisticated critical analyses around.  Here are a handful:

Why I Am Not an Objectivist

Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

The Rights (and Wrongs) of Ayn Rand

Objectivism and Thomas Jefferson

Objectivism and the Corruption of Rationality

The Unlikeliest Cult in History

Ayn Rand's style

This is only a sampling of what is out there.  There are many good reasons why Ayn Rand is not taken seriously, at all, by professional and academic philosophers, and no, it's not because professional philosophers are all a bunch of pinko commies.

Most of Ayn Rand's millions of readers wouldn't be able to make heads or tails of most of the critiques listed above so I'm not holding out any hope of winning any converts.  The postings above were chosen for their rigor and relative objectivity, not for their polemical or satirical force.  Suffice it say that Ayn Rand is a third-rate, drugstore-paperback philosopher who has managed to give naturally egomaniacal people a pseudo-philosophical justification for their egomania, hence her popularity.  Highly questionable as a philospher, absolutely atrocious as a literary stylist, she is a prominent wart on the face of the twentieth century.

 




HAHAAHAHA

touche!
