I thought that pretty much all of the questions and answers were poorly written, so I left most of the "priorities" at medium.

I rated most questions as high because I believe philosophy is important. I did think that some of the questions were poorly worded and I took the test rapidly. I am not pleased with the results. I can pound my chest all day about getting 100% for Ayn Rand but, the 62% for Immanuel Kant is very disturbing. My advice: Take your time and make sure you understand exactly what each choice means before choosing.

I am overal rather pleased with what I got. Except the fact that Hume and Kant are in my top ten disturbs me.

though my top 4 really pleases me. I find myself agreeing extensively with Nietzsche and the stoics. "The common ability of humans to reason is why ethical relativism should be rejected" Straight from the paraphrase of the stoics.

I'm "frightened" to learn I'm actually a Platonist first, Objectivist second. And I'm not crazy about Hobbes, either:

1. Aristotle   (100%)  Click here for info

2. Plato   (100%)  Click here for info

3. Ayn Rand   (91%)  Click here for info

4. Jeremy Bentham   (86%)  Click here for info

5. Thomas Hobbes   (86%)  Click here for info

6. Aquinas   (84%)  Click here for info

I'm hoping these listed "Platonic" ideas are the reason:

"There is reason to act justly even if one can get away with acting unjustly.

There is a single, general, pure idea of goodness that all good things possess (although this seems like intrincism - the idea that good is IN the object).

There is only one model of the just person. "

My main reaction is: Ayn Rand is in good company. You may not like everybody at the party, but at least you got invited. :confused:

Good god, I just researched Nel Noddings on google briefly-- I was curious about what awful ideas were keeping her at the bottom of everyone's lists. Well, I found out :thumbsup: argh, I'll spare the details for those weak of stomach...but it's all about a philosophy of 'caring', whatever the hell that's supposed to mean.

Ugh. Sounds like a clone of Carol Gilligan and her scale based on the "ethic of care" (is there a puking smiley?) :D

Even if so, I'd love to see what you had to own up to in order to get 100% Kant.
