    It's a shame they don't have Schopenhauer; our thoughts aren't exactly the same, but I think my stuff is quite similar to his.
    Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude.

    Personal Religion, by Kierkegaard
    24% Nature, 58% Rationalism, 40% Religion, 57% Freedom, 62% Individuality, 33% Power and 48% Uncertainty!
    You scored highest on the variable Individuality. Individuality was an important part of Kierkegaard's philosophy.

    Søren Kierkegaard, 1813- 1855, Denmark.

    Kierkegaard thought true religion should be found within yourself and not in uniformity. He did not oppose Christianity, but he opposed the Christian Church. The Church preached faith for the masses by rituals and generalization, which makes one lose its identity and leads to despair. True peace can only be found within yourself. As more and more people claim to have a personal belief/religion instead of conforming to a church, I think Kierkegaard was ahead of his time.

    You scored highest on the variable Religion. Religion was an important part of Augustine's philosophy.


    Saint Augustine, 354 – 430, Algeria.


    Augustine was famous for his completely theoretical proofs of God's existence, which don't make very much sense to us now.

    ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT 1:
    (1) I define God to be X.
    (2) Since I can conceive of X, X must exist.
    (3) Therefore, God exists.

    ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT (II):
    (1) I can conceive of a perfect God.
    (2) One of the qualities of perfection is existence.
    (3) Therefore, God exists.

    I already said it doesn't make very much sense to us now ...

    Cogito Ergo Sum, by Descartes

    48% Nature, 58% Rationalism, 55% Religion, 52% Freedom, 48% Individuality, 17% Power and 56% Uncertainty!

    You scored highest on the variable Rationalism.

    Rationalism was an important part of Descartes' philosophy.

    The phrase he is most famous for is Cogito Ergo Sum which means "I think therefore I am". Before Descartes, philosophy and theology were pretty much the same thing. But for the first time he didn't start with God in his reasoning, he started with humans. This was quite revolutionary at the time and caused an "explosion" in philosophy and science. We became the center of reasoning instead of god. Which implied there is nothing we won't be able to find out/understand in time.

    Kant was barely human, I think... but technically yeah, a Prussian.

    I don't have the patience to read Descartes in detail, but in my everyday thinking, the basic approach provides a foundation for my sanity. I can see why I got that result.

    I believe I took this test years ago though and got Synthetic Perception, by Kant. I remember those words exactly and I think it was this exact test!

    Existentialism, by Sartre

    32% Nature, 58% Rationalism, 20% Religion, 70% Freedom, 67% Individuality, 50% Power and 52% Uncertainty!
    You scored highest on the variable Freedom. Freedom was an important part of Sartre's philosophy.

    Jean-Paul Sartre, 1905 – 1980, France.
    Sartre does not believe in unknowable or underlying truths or meanings. The only thing we can be sure of is that we die. Which gives us an incredible amount of freedom, to choose what we want to believe and how we want to live our lives. But if there's no meaning and we die anyway, this all seems futile. Kind of depressing, but it should make you live your life to the fullest!
    I am unsurprised as Sartre's thoughts and I have been close for years now...
