    Don't know who John Stuart Mill is/was, but I'm disappointed I scored so close to Kant & Ayn Rand. They have some good points, but I disagree with a lot of their ideas & conclusions.
    I wasn't satisfied with most of the options anyway, so I don't think this is very accurate for me.

    I somehow do not see the realtion between some of my answers and the results. I am pretty sure that most of my answers do not allow such a high score in some places. And there is no way I am 100% cynic since I know that not every answer fitted onto the beliefs of a 100% cynic.

    Well the questions were interesting. But I was supprised by Ayn Rand (never read her) but from the discussions I read about her I didn't think I would be assotiated with her views...Further I have similair score on Stoics and Epicureans which are very different in their views - you can hardly be both.

    Point 1)
    You have failed to notice that Epicurean/Stoics contradiction is of a structural character cq. a couple of other poster score contains this contradiction..


    Point 2)
    This may be due to your mental capacity level (as you demonstrated it in Point 1)

    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.



    I'm not so much like that.... :bugeye:

    I was simply pointing out that it may or may not be the site's mistakes for your results. While it does base itself on their own evaluation, whatever desired results you wish to get is obviously contradicting what this site feels you should obtain. But who am I going to hold as a higher priority or a better evaluation? A group of people whom have actually studied these philosophers and know what they are capable of or someone whoms only read about a few of them? What you fail to see is that some of your views are similar Stoics and some are similar Epicureans, if they both have very different or even contradicting beliefs then so do your ideas. Either that or this quiz is an idiotic waste of time.

    Obviously you have no idea what an evaluation is. I was simply wondering what everyone's elses view was on the question was, I know why I had gotten different results, its because my ideas in philosophy differs from yours. Its called curiousity but your literal type aren't you?
