So I decided to start looking at different philosophers, and found this quiz to try and figure out which one I mostly agree with...I got Sartre/Camus, with Nietzsche being a close second/third. How about you guys?

Quiz is here: http://www.gotoquiz.com...

And for fun, here's another one which shows your actual philosophy. I got Hedonism with Existentialism and Utilitarianism tied for close seconds.

Which philosophy do you follow quiz:

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."_Thomas Jefferson

"The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it."_Thomas Jefferson

"It is easier to fool someone than to convince them that they have been fooled."-Mark Twain

Oh, yeah, here's the summation I got:

"Truth does not exist in some transcendent realm. We get to truth by applying reason to the physical world. The world follows logic and commonsense. Science if done properly is not to far from philosophy."

Gotta admit -- I agree.

Yeah, I have to say that sounds pretty good.

Mine was: "The world is absurd. No facts govern it. We live well once we truly accept the world's absurdity. YOU give our life's meaning, and YOU control your world. (see Nietzsche for very closely tied beliefs)."

I have to agree a lot with that as well....Kind of a combination of both, I suppose.

Got Kant and Kantianism.

I'm Santre/Camus - late existentialists

The world is absurd. No facts govern it. We live well once we truly accept the world's absurdity. YOU give our life's meaning, and YOU control your world. (see Nietzsche for very closely tied beliefs)

"Which philosopher are you?
Your Result: Aristotle

Truth does not exist in some transcendent realm. We get to truth by applying reason to the physical world. The world follows logic and commonsense. Science if done properly is not to far from philosophy. --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.
W.v.O. Quine / Late Wittgenstein

Early Wittgenstein / Positivists

Sartre/Camus (late existentialists)

Nietzsche

Immanuel Kant

Plato (strict rationalists)"

Aristotle was an epistemological nihilist like me I believe. I didn't like the answer options that much though. And I'm definitely not an existentialist. (Kant yay)
"Music is a zen-like ecstatic state where you become the new man of the future, the Nietzschean merger of Apollo and Dionysus." Ray Manzarek (The Doors)

I got W.v.O. Quine/Late Wittgenstein, with Sartre/Camus as close runner ups.

"There is no provable absolute truth. The way you see things is dependant on your language. Truths exist only within a language, and change as the language does."
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

The philosopher quiz I got: W.v.O. Quine / Late Wittgenstein

The philosophy quiz (which was extremely biased in favor of moralism and is more of an ethics quiz) I got: existentialism.

Kant

There are things in themselves, but they are unimportant to us. We must interpret everything through certain immutable categories, such as time and the laws of physics. All rational animals must see the world through these categories, and what they see is unrelated to the things in themselves.

Next:

W.v.O. Quine / Late Wittgenstein
Early Wittgenstein / Positivists
Sartre/Camus (late existentialists)

I have gotten Plato, and close to Aristotle. :)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." ~ John 1:1

Matthew 10:22- "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."

Yes, why?

Kant is basically the Godfather of dat. He thought that the mind necessarily projected certain categories on to the world i.e., space and time (and God? I'm not sure). He thought it was impossible to know the world as it truly is (noumena) but that the world would always conform to concepts in the mind like space (spatiality) and time (temporality). He seems to have developed skepticism and subjectivism to a more useful direction then where Hume left it.

+1

I can't stand hearing about "the Forms" all of the time.

Circular brah but k.

It's not that. It's that we can't even know what he really thought since Plato constantly just pushed his own opinions out through him.
