Moral Philosophy

I have my own moral philosophy, posted at:

Below are the results of a moral philosophy test I took at http://selectsmart.com/PHILOSOPHY/ (thanks to operationpetty for this link).

Among those on the list, I would say my position is actually closest to David Hume's, although my philosophy is a form of utilitarianism similar to John Stuart Mill's and Jeremy Bentham's. I also find admirable points in Epicurus and in Sartre's and Nietzsche's existentialist views. Kant came in way too high in my results. I think Kant is a dick--the most overrated philosopher of all time. And Ayn Rand came in too low. I'm no objectivist, but I am sympathetic to Rand's views on morality.

2. Jean-Paul Sartre (90%)
3. John Stuart Mill (81%)
4. Nietzsche (79%)
