    Which Philosopher Are You Test

    Link: HelloQuizzy.com: The Philosophy Test



    Søren Kierkegaard




    Your philosopher is Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (May 5, 1813 - November 11, 1855), a 19th century Danish philosopher who is generally recognized as the first existentialist philosopher. Much of his work deals with religious problems such as the nature of faith, the institution of the Christian church, and Christian ethics and theology. Kierkegaard is best known for the concept of the 'leap of faith'. You value true individuality. Becoming aware of your true self is your true task and endeavor in life. It is an ethical imperative, necessary to achieve true spirituality. To you, people who live simply in terms of their pleasures - their immediate satisfaction of desires, propensities, or distractions - simply glide through life without direction or purpose. To have a direction, we must have a purpose that defines for us the meaning of our lives.

    Hegel


    Your philosopher is Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 - November 14, 1831), a German philosopher born in Stuttgart, Württemberg, in present-day southwest Germany. Hegel's thought represents the summit of 19th Century Germany's movement of philosophical idealism. It would come to have a profound impact on many future philosophical schools such as Existentialism, as well as the historical materialism of Karl Marx. Like Hegel, you believe that there is an underlying reality, w would-force or world-spirit, that is moving us inevitably forward. You believe that we are all swept up in the movement of this force as it struggles toward self-realization. Politically, you believe that absolute freedom is possible when the will of the individual merges with the will of the state. You seek, in other words, the union of the particular with the universal. In your day to day life, what this means is that you see each event, each coincidence, as evidence of a larger whole.

    Edmund Husserl



    Your philosopher is Edmund Gustav Albrecht Husserl, (April 8, 1859 - April 26, 1938), philosopher, was born into a Jewish family in Prostějov (Prossnitz), Moravia, Czech Republic (then part of the Austrian Empire). He is known as the "father" of phenomenology. You concentrate on the ideal, essential structures of consciousness. You think that that the world of objects is normally conceived of in what he called the "natural attitude", which is characterized by a belief that objects themselves have certain properties and in seeing these objects we come to understand what is inherent in them.

    Hmmm...

    Baruch Spinoza

    Your philosopher is Benedictus de Spinoza (November 24, 1632 - February 21, 1677), named Baruch Spinoza by his synagogue elders. Along with René Descartes and Gottfried Leibniz, he was one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy. He is considered the founder of modern Biblical criticism. His magnum opus was the Ethics. You believe that what we think of as "God" and "Nature" are two names for the same reality, namely the single substance that underlies the universe and of which all lesser "entities" are actually modes or modifications. There is, in each rock, tree, animal and human, a bit of the same essence; deep down we are all the same. Your compassion for others is therefore as deep as your compassion for yourself, and in all things you see the same spirituality you see when you look in the mirror.

    61% realism, higher than 79% of peers
    78% rationalism, higher than 98% of peers
    33% materialism, higher than 22% of peers
    33% atomism, higher than 14% of peers

    Your philosopher is Plato (c. 427 BC – c. 347 BC), an immensely influential classical Greek philosopher, student of Socrates, teacher of Aristotle, writer, and founder of the Academy in Athens. You divide the world into two distinct aspects: the intelligible world of "forms" and the perceptual world we see around us. You see the perceptual world, and the things in it, as imperfect copies of the intelligible forms or ideas. These forms are unchangeable and perfect, and are only comprehensible by the use of the intellect or understanding. The ultimate idealist, you believe in the virtue of humanity, the purity of music, the essence of morality.

    i am so confused right now.

    Your philosopher is Immanuel Kant (April 22, 1724 – February 12, 1804), a German philosopher from Prussia, generally regarded as one of Europe's most influential thinkers and the last major philosopher of the Enlightenment. Kant is best known for his view — called transcendental idealism — that we bring innate forms and concepts to the raw experience of the world, which would otherwise be unknowable. You believe there is a spiritual world, perhaps unknowable (but which can be understood through reason and reflection). This world is the frame for our action. Hence, you believe that each human being is an end in themselves, and that that we have universal duties, which hold despite one's own inclinations or the desire to pursue one's own happiness.

    thanks for the test, it was fun (:

    William James

    William James
    Your philosopher is William James (January 11, 1842 - August 26, 1910), born in New York, philosopher, psychologist and one of the founders of the philosopher movement known as American pragmatism. Like William James, your philosophy is based on the rough-hewn approach of "what works." You are less inclined to get caught up in ideas of the spiritual or the transcendental, though you are deeply aware of the immaterial part of the self, the 'stream of consciousness' that characterizes your every waking moment, and are willing to give credence to such phenomena as religious experience and enlightenment. What you are not willing to do, however, is to construct a complex theology out of them, taking from them only what is necessary to have a full and productive life.

    Saint Thomas Aquinas:

    Your philosopher is Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225 March 7, 1274), an Italian Catholic philosopher and theologian in the scholastic tradition, who gave birth to the Thomistic school of philosophy, which was long the primary philosophical approach of the Roman Catholic Church. He is considered by the Catholic church to be its greatest theologian and one of the thirty-three Doctors of the Church.

    Religion, for you (and you are no doubt spiritual) is a matter of rationality, not dogma or superstition. You believe in the theological because it does not make sense to imagine a world that is merely materialistic. There is more to your life than just yourself, and what matters to you is your fullest self-actualization in the image of the Holy

    yep yep.
