Part III, Chapters 1-9

Ben Bayer, Paul Taske

Presented at: The Fountainhead Discussion Series 2020

Date: May 01, 2020

Discussion questions for this session:

1. What motivates Wynand's choice of career and his approach to dealing with men of integrity? How do his motives and approach to living compare to Dominique's? 

2. Wynand says that a quest for self-respect is a proof of its lack (437). What actions of which characters presented in this reading (and prior readings) can be understood as examples of this? 

3. What do we learn in this reading about the author's view of the nature of the soul or the self? How does this view help us understand the difference between Keating and Roark? What does it imply about Wynand??
