More Philosophy Trivia

Some time ago, I posted several philosophy trivia quizzes. I have run across a couple more, that I thought that I would share.

* Philosophy Trivia Quiz -- This one is an interesting mix of some easy questions and a couple of fairly tricky ones.

* Philosophy Quotes Quiz -- This quiz is actually quite difficult, but interesting.

The quotes quiz I actually made a mistake on. Oh well. These are still quite fun things to test oneself with. Even if you do not get all the answers correct, you will almost certainly learn something by taking them.

As many people are aware, philosophers often use fairly technical terms. These can be somewhat obscure. Of course, it is also the case that philosophers will take otherwise normal words, given them a special meaning and then forget to tell anybody that they have done this. However, it is safe to say that having a pretty good vocabulary is pretty useful, when reading and doing philosophy. For this reason, the following vocabulary quizzes may be of interest.

* Tough Words Quiz -- There are some real stinkers in this quiz.

Finally (especially for Bardiac), do you know which common words were introduced into English by Shakespeare? Try,

* Shakespeare's Words Quiz -- The results of this can be quite surprising.

If anyone knows of any other good philosophical quizzes, please feel free to drop me a line. Enjoy!
