Philosophies of Life
INSTRUCTIONS: Below are described fifteen ways to live which various persons at various times have advocated and followed.
Indicate by numbers how much you yourself like or dislike each of them. Do them in order and mark each one as you read it. Do not read ahead. Guess what the philosophy is called, too, if you like.
Your results will be compared to mine so you can see how we match up.
7 - I like it very much. 6 - I like it quite a bit. 5 - I like it slightly. 4 - I am indifferent to it. 3 - I dislike it slightly. 2 - I dislike it quite a bit. 1 - I dislike it very much.
Of course, you can always just skip ahead to the answers!
Calvin: If Heaven is good and if I like to be bad, how am I supposed to be happy there?
Hobbes: How will you get to heaven if you like to be bad?
Calvin: Let's say I didn't do what I wanted to do. Suppose I led a blameless life! Suppose I denied my true dark nature!
Hobbes: I'm not sure I have that much imagination.
Calvin: Maybe Heaven is a place where you're allowed to be bad!
