    There is no provable absolute truth. The way you see things is dependant on your language. Truths exist only within a language, and change as the language does.

    Your Result: Aristotle

    Truth does not exist in some transcendent realm. We get to truth by applying reason to the physical world. The world follows logic and commonsense. Science if done properly is not to far from philosophy.

    Which philosopher are you?
    Your Result: Sartre/Camus (late existentialists)
    The world is absurd. No facts govern it. We live well once we truly accept the world's absurdity. YOU give our life's meaning, and YOU control your world.

    (see Nietzsche for very closely tied beliefs)

    This needs more questions. I redid it and changed one thing and and got Sartre/Camus which doesn't seem to really share the views of Aristotle at all.

    86% There is a transcendent, absolute truth. We can get to this truth by pure reason, in the form of dialectic. Everyone wants truth. Truth is virtue, is happiness. Your philosophy might boil down to: You are right and those who disagree with you are wrong. (Note that there are many different conflicting interpretations of Plato's writings.) --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

    At least one of the questions didn't have any option I could fully relate to.

    The ambiguity of language is the cause for most (if not all) philosophical problems. If we could get a purely objective language all philosophical problems would be solved. Q.E.D. --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

    There is no provable absolute truth. At the bottom of every philosophy there is some inspired assumption which the philosopher defends with reasons they have sought after the fact. There is no rational principle behind our world. The most noble goal in life is to create art. To live well is to be art. If life is a dream, "I will dream on!" --This quiz was made by S. A-Lerer.

    Aristotle, but I think the test sucks.

    Lacks Spinoza and a number of important philosophers.

    didn't like the way both art and math were viewed. it was kind of a 'none of the above' thing for me personally. The way my brain sees it; mathematics is reality chopped up, whereas art is reality sewn together. Science is kind of a mixture of the two, since its pure essence is one of observation.

    Interjecting that maths is reality decomposed and resown in forms more fantastical than most see in the bottom of their LSD/vodka shot. A painfully pure expression of imagination.

    I think i get what you mean @GuavaDrunk.

    Numbers are weird. Ironically, math (especially the higher forms) are much more artistic than what we consider to be art.

    "At the bottom of every philosophy there is some inspired assumption which the philosopher defends with reasons they have sought after the fact. There is no rational principle behind our world. The most noble goal in life is to create art. To live well is to be art."
    =
    contradiction

    but I guess that's the point.
