Moral Philosophy Quiz

with 4 comments

Johnny Dee dropped by this morning (by way of a comment on the previous post) to say that he switched to a Mac in the lat year and is very happy with the move. Following his comment back to his blog lead me to some interesting stuff (as usual).

First, there was a link to a moral philosophy quiz here, which gave me the following results:

1. Aquinas (100%) Click here for info
2. Aristotle (83%) Click here for info
3. St. Augustine (83%) Click here for info
4. Spinoza (72%) Click here for info
5. John Stuart Mill (63%) Click here for info
6. Epicureans (60%) Click here for info
7. Ockham (57%) Click here for info
8. Plato (55%) Click here for info
9. Jeremy Bentham (52%) Click here for info
10. Ayn Rand (43%) Click here for info
11. Cynics (43%) Click here for info
12. Nietzsche (37%) Click here for info
13. Kant (34%) Click here for info
14. Stoics (31%) Click here for info
15. David Hume (28%) Click here for info
16. Thomas Hobbes (25%) Click here for info
17. Jean-Paul Sartre (22%) Click here for info
18. Prescriptivism (21%) Click here for info
19. Nel Noddings (20%) Click here for info

There’s no surprise in seeing Aquinas, Aristotle and Augustine at the top of the list, as those are all philosophers I’ve long enjoyed. I guess that makes me ‘triple A rated’. Spinoza is intriguing and Mill’s appearance proof that I am a centrist who leans right, opinions of the so called ‘reality based community’ notwithstanding.

  2. I find everything being said here very interesting. I find Aquina’s philosophy on life very truthful and meaningful. The reason for this is because everything that happens in real life is truly and surely meant for a purpose because God has a set date and time for everything and everyone living on this planet. We may not always like or be in agreement with the pupose everything that happens and/or changes in life, but as long as we are able to adapt to changes and challenges that arise we are very well off, and therefore, we become much happier with ourselves and the world around us. Human nature is good because God is good, however, God gives us free will and unfortunately humans use their free will many times in manners that are negative which explains why people are different from one another. Therefore, happiness is definitely found in the love of God.
