Aristotelian

Hey, here’s a moral philosophy quiz, found on Matthew Yglesias’s blog.

As noted in his comments section, these quizzes aren’t at all revealing if you just “game” them — pick the answers you know will result in a particular classification (in this case, a particular moral philosopher).

But if you keep your mind innocent of ethics 101, you might be able to get an honest analysis.

My top three matches were Aquinas, Aristotle, and Spinoza. So apparently the last four centuries of progress in moral philosophy have been lost on me.
