There is a transcendent, absolute truth. We can get to this truth by pure reason, in the form of dialectic. Everyone wants truth. Truth is virtue, is happiness. Your philosophy might boil down to: You are right and those who disagree with you are wrong. (Note that there are many different conflicting interpretations of Plato's writings.)

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.

Which philosopher are you?

Your Result: Nietzsche

84% There is no provable absolute truth. At the bottom of every philosophy there is some inspired assumption which the philosopher defends with reasons they have sought after the fact. There is no rational principle behind our world. The most noble goal in life is to create art. To live well is to be art. If life is a dream, "I will dream on!"

Thanks!

N-S-R
You scored 78% Non-Reductionism (higher than 67% of your peers.), 44% Epistemological Absolutism (higher than 29% of your peers.), and 44% Moral Objectivism( higher than 48% of your peers.)!
You are an N-S-R: a metaphysical Non-Reductionist, an epistemological Skeptic, and a moral Relativist. If you are simply dying inside to figure out what all this mumbo-jumbo means, then simply continue reading.

Realists deny the validity of sloppy metaphysical reductions, because they feel that there is no reason to suspect that reality reflects principles of parsimony or simplicity. Realism is the most common-sensical of the metaphysical views. It doesn't see reality as a unity or as reducible to matter or mind, nor does it see reality as divided into a phenomenal world of experience and an unknowable noumenal world of things-in-themselves. Realist metaphysics emphasizes that reality is for the most part composed of the things we observe and think. On the question of the existence of universals, for instance, a realist will assert that while universals do not physically exist, the relations they describe in particulars are as real as the particular things themselves, giving universals a type of reality. Thus, no reduction is made. On the mind-body problem, realists tend to believe that minds and bodies both exist, and the philosophical problems involved in reducing mind to matter or matter to mind are too great to warrant such a reduction. Finally, realists deny that reality is ultimately a Unity or Absolute, though they recognize that reality can be viewed as a Unity when we consider the real relations between the parts as constituting this unity--but it doesn't mean that the world isn't also made up of particular things. Aristotle and Popper are famous realists.

Epistemological Subjectivists, like idealists, believe that all our knowledge is ultimately of our own making because it is filtered through our subjective perceptions. Unlike an idealist, though, a subjectivist doesn't believe in any universal categories of "truth" that apply to the phenomenal world, because each individual can create his own truth. Either that, or he will hold that society or custom creates its own forms of truth. A subjectivist will tend to regard scientific inquiry as a game of sorts--science does not reveal truths about reality, but only gives scientists pseudo-solutions to pseudo-problems of the scientific community's own devising. It is a type of puzzle-solving, but the puzzle isn't of reality. The definition of truth to a subjectivist may be one that recognizes a proposition's usefulness to an individual. William James is one such subjectivist, who believes that we can "will to believe" certain propositions so long as we would find them useful. The example he gives is being found in a situation where you must leap over a chasm in order to survive. The true belief, in such a situation, is that the leap will be successful--this truth is certainly more useful to us, and in believing the truth we become more willing to commit to the jump and make it successful. So, in essence, knowledge of reality is possible for a subjectivist because they never make reference to any objective reality existing outside of our own perceptions and beliefs--we can have knowledge of reality through having knowledge of ourselves, and that is all that we should ask for. Famous subjectivists include Kuhn, Feyarabend, and James. Another famed critic of Absolutism is Hume.

Subjectivists see individual or collective desires as defining a situation's or object's moral worth. Thus, the subject, not the object itself, determines the value. Subjectivists recognize that social rules, customs, and morality have been wide-ranging and quite varied throughout history among various cultures. As a result, Subjectivism doesn't attempt to issue hard and fast rules for judging the moral worth of things. Instead, it recognizes that what we consider "good" and "right" is not bound by any discernable rule. There is no one trait that makes an act good or right, because so many different kinds of things have been called good and right. In regards to the definition of "good" or "right", a Subjectivist will tend to define it as whatever a particular person or group of people desire. They do not define it merely as "happiness" or "pleasure", for instance, because sometimes we desire to do things that do not produce pleasure, and because we don't consider all pleasurable things good. Furthermore, Subjectivists recognize the validity of consequentialism in that sometimes we refer to consequences as good and bad--but they also recognize that our intentions behind an action, or the means to the end, can also determine an act's moral worth. Again, there is no one rule to determine these things. Hence the relativism of moral Subjectivism. The most well-known of the subjectivists is Nietzsche.

I am not a purist!

Spoiler:


The world could be called absurd to subjective criteria. Some facts govern it, to what degree we can observe said facts is limited. Whether we live well or not, is not dependent on whether we realize an absurdity in life. Meaning is irrelevant, control is limited- possibly an illusion.

"Within the soul the faculties of knowledge and sensation are potentially these objects, the one what is knowable, the other what is sensible. They must be either the things themselves or their forms. The former alternative is of course impossible: it is not the stone which is present in the soul but its form." Aristotle
"The thinking then of the simple objects of thought is found in those cases where falsehood is impossible: where the alternative of true or false applies, there we always find a putting together of objects of thought in a quasi-unity. For falsehood always involves a synthesis; for even if you assert that what is white is not white you have included not-white in a synthesis." Aristotle

I am surprised at the high W.v.o. Quine/Late Wittgenstein averages. I don't know why. Perhaps language is something people think about a lot. Another thing I don't get is why my scores were mostly relatively high compared to others in accordance with the second, third fourth ect. percentages. I think this is weird since I haven't really dedicated any time to studying any of these peoples philosophies specifically.

I find the idea of this thread very tempting and educational,
because it will not only help the participants to understand themselves a little better,
but also give others the opportunity to have an insight into "where someone is coming from, bro".
Nontheless, i have to say that this test is insufficient,
because
A) limited selection of topics to identify with.
B) limited selection of philosophers representing (?) a position on a given topic
which may change over time.

Your Result: Plato (strict rationalists) 66%
There is a transcendent, absolute truth. We can get to this truth by pure reason, in the form of dialectic. Everyone wants truth. Truth is virtue, is happiness. Your philosophy might boil down to: You are right and those who disagree with you are wrong. (Note that there are many different conflicting interpretations of Plato's writings.) --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

  • 46% Aristotle
  • 42% W.v.O. Quine / Late Wittgenstein
  • 38% Early Wittgenstein / Positivists
  • 24% Immanuel Kant
  • 22% Sartre/Camus (late existentialists)
  • 20% Nietzsche




On a side note:
Interesting name, which the creator of this quiz took,
S.A. being "Storm Troopers" and Le(h)rer (phonetically identical to the original spelling) being "Teacher".

Which philosopher are you?
Your Result: Plato (strict rationalists)

There is a transcendent, absolute truth. We can get to this truth by pure reason, in the form of dialectic. Everyone wants truth. Truth is virtue, is happiness. Your philosophy might boil down to: You are right and those who disagree with you are wrong. (Note that there are many different conflicting interpretations of Plato's writings.) --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

Totally agree with you Sal. Did you see there was not a single eastern philosopher? ex. Middle east, China, Japan ect. I respect all those cultures too much not to mention it. There is so much history there that the U.S. rarely taps into.

Yes, what most people who highly identify with western thought (overidentification) fail to realize, is that this recent development (renaissance, enlightenment) had come to us only via the trade and cultural exchange in the late middle ages.

I don't think this is a very good quiz, because it only lists a small fraction of philosophers.

I got Aristotle.

Ok now, it will be interesting to see what those who got Sarte think of his ideas after they have read them (if they haven't already).

Dr_Chroot's Result: Immanuel Kant (89%)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. --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

Aristotle 60%

Early Wittgenstein / Positivists 46%

Very interesting test! I am disappointed that Kierkegaard or Aquinas were not covered, but overall an excellent waste of my time. Couldn't have done better

This tells me that I should read Wittgenstein. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I wish there were more quizzes like this so I can discover philosophers and philosophies that I'd be interested in reading. I think that Book selection is a very important and difficult task because even with our entire lifespan, we wouldn't be able to read even a single percentage of all the books in the world.

Nietzsche 80%

There is no provable absolute truth. At the bottom of every philosophy there is some inspired assumption which the philosopher defends with reasons they have sought after the fact. There is no rational principle behind our world. The most noble goal in life is to create art. To live well is to be art. If life is a dream, "I will dream on!"

Surprisingly I scored higher as a positivist than a late existentialist.
