Emre Gurgen wrote this Fountainhead Reference Guide after taking a seminar on the Philosophy of Objectivism in 2009 with The Ayn Rand Institute’s Chief Philosophy Officer Dr. Onkar Ghate. This distance learning course prompted Mr. Gurgen to independently study Ayn Rand’s philosophy for ten years. During this time he learned about Objectivism by not only reading and re-reading all of her fiction and nonfiction but he also studied 81 books, lectures, and essays written by proven Objectivist Intellectuals. After studying Objectivism for a decade, Mr. Gurgen wrote this Fountainhead Reference Guide to learn how Ayn Rand’s philosophy is dramatized by The Fountainhead’s plot-theme. Accordingly, Mr. Gurgen spent 17 months – i.e. thousands of hours – first color coding The Fountainhead. Then writing this Reference Guide. So that he can eventually write an accurate Fountainhead Analyzed essay book, the lead essay of which will be titled Howard Roark the Life Giver. Hopefully, after Mr. Gurgen earns the trust of his fellow objectivists he will merit The Ayn Rand Institute’s sanction together with the approval of Objectivist Intellectual(s) – especially Dr. Andrew Bernstein – both for this Reference Guide and for his forthcoming Essay Book, too.
