19. Don't you dare call Ayn Rand a philosopher
The quality of her work is extremely poor. I expect higher quality thinking (though certainly not higher quality writing) from my undergraduates. I consider my reading of Objectivist Epistemology to have been a complete and utter waste of my time. It would have been more enlightening to have instead watched a couple more episodes of the Simpsons.

I am one of the many of the grad students in my department who are in the habit of hiding her books behind actual works of philosophy when coming across them in a bookstore.
