What Philosphy do YOU follow? Take the quiz here, and THEN answer the poll.

You scored as Kantianism.     



Your life is guided by the ethical model of Kantianism: You seek to have consistent laws rule your actions, and your will is directed by reason.

"I do not, therefore, need any penetrating acuteness to see what I have to do in order that my volition be morally good. Inexperienced in the course of the world, incapable of being prepared for whatever might come to pass in it, I ask myself only: can you also will that your maxim become a universal law?"
--Immanuel Kant

You scored as Existentialism.     

Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life.

Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.
It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.
--Jean-Paul Sartre

You scored as Strong Egoism.     



Your life is very much guided by the concept of Egoism: You work primarily to promote your own interests.

�I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.�
�I am not primarily an advocate of capitalism, but of egoism; and I am not primarily an advocate of egoism, but of reason. If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows.�

Ugh Kantism is usually held by socialists, and existentialism by Frenchies who hate the world.

Divine command part is dumb, just because a person thinks that people should follow "God's will" doesn't define "God's will" in any way shape or form.  If I say people should follow what they believe their God would do, that does not mean that I think that God commands the world.  Free Will anybody?  I don't like this quiz too much even though I know I scored about where I thought I would

Isn't free will largely a Christian belief? I would have to agree, there is far too much variation in what people believe to be "God's will". Just the same I don't think many people will rate 100% under divine command.

I'm not a Christian, and I know a few Christians who are hardcore predestination types.

A lot of the questions were fairly ambiguous, and even the rating system for each question left a lot to be desired, but oh well.
