    I took this quiz once before about 2 years ago I think. It's interesting, because Ayn Rand is still at the top, but the other one's have changed, Nietzsche used to be my second I think. Either way interesting.

    well, you'd be surprised. Nietzsche is one of the few philosophers Ayn Rand talked about in a positive manner (him and Aristotle) otherwise she had serious problems with most other philosophers. The similarities with Nietzche, are basically the idea of the "superman" in Nietzche who rises above the ways of others to establish themselves as an individual and a new wave, sort of creating their own new moral code. That was a pretty crude description, but I think looking at that, the similarities seem pretty obvious. Because Ayn Rand is all about the true hero and such.

    That doesn't mean their can't be similarities. This "hero" idea Nietzche had that was certainly an influence on Ayn Rand. She does not like his subjectivism, you're right. But she DOES like the idea of a hero, and likes the way Nietzche talks about the idea of a hero. And besides, this test was purely ethics, not metaphysics and other things. Both of them have the idea of a "hero" as an essential part of their ethical philosophies, despite the objectivism or subjectivism.

    a world with no philosophy
    none of the answers satisfied me.
    the savage mind is total, not fragmented into such nonsense.

    Yes, I know they had many simimlar ideas, but I'm saying you can't agree with both on a question about, say, what defines morality. And while I didn't get a 100% for both, 80% is pretty close. Besides, I had thought that my answers would have gotten me no agreement with Nietzche.

    That is wierd. But what I think is even wierder is that I agreed with both Sartre and Rand. Sartre was a communist for christ's sake!

    I'm not much into philosophy although I read some of my father's books, but it seems that Kant is right up my alley. Or perhaps I'm right up at his.
