• hey, I just took this quiz. http://selectsmart.com/PHILOSOPHY/  It said i was most like Kant. but I don’t really get Kantianism. can some one sum it for me thanks. also feel free to post your result.


  • i think i’ve picked the most controversial philosopher . . .
    Aquinas (1225 or '27-1274)

    All life has a purpose
    Meeting this purpose allows one to be happy.
    Happiness is to be found in the love of God.
    God’s grace providing entrance into heaven creates the highest form of human happiness.
    Short of heaven, a person can achieve a more limited form of happiness through a life of virtue and friendship.
    Morality is not determined by the arbitrary will of God.
    Morality is derived from human nature and the activities that are objectively suited to it.
    The difference between right and wrong can be appreciated through the use of reason and reflection.
    Religious reflection may supplement the use of reason and reflection to determine right from wrong.
    Societies must enact laws to ensure the correct application of moral reasoning.
    Human nature is good because God made it good.

  • @Lucifer:

    Ayn Rand 100%.

    I bet epicurism came in a close second right?

    I got 100% Kant (Kantianism)
    but i haven’t really heard of trhis dude before so I was wondering if sum one would sum him up for me.

    Kant:

    We can make a prior judgments; the negation of such judgments would a logical absurdity because a priori knowledge is known without sensory data.

    We combine a priori and a posteriori knowledge to

    We have freedom

    God is not essential for his moral argumentation

    The objective facts about the human knowledge leads to Kant’s morality

    We must act ought of a sense of duty in order to be moral

    Moral action does not come out of following inclinations

    Moral standards must be followed without qualification

    We must always act so that the means of our actions could be a universal law

    We must always treat people as ends not means


  • 100% Aquinas and 100% Ayn Rand

    John Stuart Mill (100%)
    I’d never heard of him so I read up on him a bit… Smart guy, the test nailed me pretty good I think.

    Also - Aquinas (96%)

  • 2007 AAR League

    Actually, CC, I think I picked a more controvercial one. St Thomas Aquinas seems to be a much more popular philosopher here.

    1.  Spinoza  (100%)
    2.  Jean-Paul Sartre  (73%) 
    3.  Aquinas  (64%) 
    4.  Epicureans  (63%) 
    5.  Nietzsche  (63%)

    100% Aquinas and 100% Ayn Rand

    This cant be possible. If it was true then both have the same ideas or the test is corrupt by some means.

    Besides Aquinas was not a Philosophy of existentialism. They are both very different and yet your results allow the same value for both.
    that is not logical to me.


  • 100% Sartre (a bit of a surprise…)
    91% Ayn Rand (anyone surprised by that?  Except perhaps that it is not 100% Ayn Rand?)

    added to  classic liberalism(libertarinism) and thought people should act to say “one must always act so as to produce the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people”


  • O_o I must have answered those questions incorrectly because I don’t think that one must always act to produce the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people…. O_O! Or do I?

    I posted mine earlier but here it is…

    1.  Spinoza   (100%)
    2.  Jean-Paul Sartre   (73%)  
    3.  Aquinas   (64%)  
    4.  Epicureans   (63%)  
    5.  Nietzsche   (63%)

    Reason and a connection with and a compassion for all things living should dictate your moral obligations toward life rather than fear of your diety’s retribution or selfish desire. It’s simply easier and more rewarding to be nice to people. Being an a**hole takes effort.


  • I posted mine earlier but here it is…

    Whoops, I wasn’t being specific enough. I mean what were your specific answers to the multiple choice questions, not the end result.

    Reason and a connection with and a compassion for all things living should dictate your moral obligations toward life rather than fear of your diety’s retribution or selfish desire. It’s simply easier and more rewarding to be nice to people. Being an a**hole takes effort.

    WTf that’s almost exactly what I think yet I got Aquinas and John Stuart Mill? O_O
