St. Augustine(82%) 5. John Stuart Mill(77%) 6. Prescriptivism(75%) 7. Ockham(71%) 8. Aquinas(62%) 9. Aristotle (61%) 10. Plato (60%) 11. Jeremy Bentham (58%) 12. Epicureans(45%)13.

Mike is destined for Hell, where he will surely overthrow Satan, and become the new ultimate overlord of evil. :evil::twisted::muahaha:

1. Kant (100%)

2. Jean-Paul Sartre (90%)

3. Jeremy Bentham (87%)

4. Aquinas (83%)

My results may be skewed by the fact that I didn't give any thought to my answers, but just checked the one that seemed best at a 2 second glance. Sartre is gaining support! If we support Democracy, we'll have to agree that the highest rated philosopher in the pole becomes "Philosopher King".

Current rankings:

1st 2nd 3rd

Sartre 2 2 1

Kant 2 1

Nobody else received more than one vote.

Sartre finishes out of the money for the first time! (And even then, Peter has him in 4th place.)

Also, Nietzsche gets a second first place vote! I refuse to live in a country ruled by a person whose name is impossible to spell properly! If Nietzsche wins, I'm moving to Canada.

Honestly, not particularly surprising... I've been reading quite a lot of neo-Aristotelian views lately... and frankly, my readings in Taoism aren't helping.

Marking the top 4, I got:

Hume - makes sense really, one of the first philosophers I ever tried to read slowly.

Sartre - consider this is probably due to Heidegger's influence more than Sartre's.

Nietzsche - always on my desk, in my mind & bathroom, running through so much.

Hobbes - again, this makes sense. Old Tom boy was the first philosopher I ever read.

The classical liberal thinkers along with the Epicureans & Stoics took a healthy middle ground, again, this makes sense, not only have they generally been read, but more importantly their influence runs deeply in our societies' contemporary traditions and perspectives. Their influence, be this for good or bad, cannot be underestimated.

And drifting into insignifiance were the likes of Ockham, Aquinas, Plato with Augustine, who I've never read directly, propping the column with an impressive 0%.

Hume! How did this guy creep up on my list? I guess I'm not as good of a Platonist as I thought, but I've been reading Epictetus lately, so the Stoic influence is certainly understandable.

PoL, it's just fun nonsense. Disregard whatever results you get. :)

Disregard whatever results you get.

But pay very close attention to the results other people get.

I fear the unknown, and nobody knows who Nel Noddings is; therefore I am now terrified of you, Peter. :alarm::freakout1:

Considering the fact that I rarely shave, and Rob shaves his armpits, I expected him to score higher with Ockham than I did, and yet he scored lower.

How strange. :scratch:

Ockham's Razor joke. :cheer3:

Don't worry. I never actually took the test. I just made that result up to try and be different from everyone else.
