Boop!
  • Zeno of Citium founded Stoicism which basically seeks to avoid negative thought. So if you stop having thoughts that cause you grief, the world itself cannot cause you grief either, because it is your thoughts that ultimately decide what you feel.
  • Averroes' writings reignited interest in Classical Philosophy in Europe.
  • Hayek argued against planned economies.
  • Hobbes argued that, for society to function, there had to be a deterrence measure to enforce the social contract, so suppress humanity's innate barbarism. His book, Leviathan was on this topic.
  • Keynes might be a reference to John Maynard Keynes, an economist but not a philosopher as far as I know.
  • Marx is self explanatory.
  • A utility monster is a hypothetical entity that derives more happiness than the suffering its action it inflicts, therefore under Utilitarianism, you might actually be obligated to sacrifice yourself to it since it gets more utility out of your death than you do from your own life.

If someone DOES do a pokemon plot, they should totally make everyone take the Mystery dungeon quiz for their charecter.
Yes.

Although becoming Pokémon would seriously mess up some move-sets for that plot at the least.

Of course, Twin is neither man nor woman but an unholy eldritch abomination like every other Bay12er. The difference is they hide it better.

obviously becoming Pokemon means we become standard Pokemon of our level, with level-appropriate moves (+1 we can learn of our choice)

Not necessarily, it won't affect the LBP plot too wildly for them to have a stuffed burlap format at least, and if Pikachu can learn surf...

Dackly got Totodile, obviously.

In a strange twist, Gozer gets Torchic.

Or just go combine all the plot ideas that people have talked about the most. So I guess have fun becoming Political, a Dragon/Social-Contract Type PhiloServaMon :P

Political used Noble Treatise - Leviathan, or the Matter, Forme, and Power of a Common Wealth, Ecclesiasticall and Civil! It was super-effective! Political's true nature as Leviahobbes has been revealed!

Because trying to stuff Fate/Whatever's engrish and the title of a 17th century book on statecraft into Pokemon syntax tends to make the content incomprehensible.

I have no idea what a philosophy vegan is, but that explains so much. So. Much.

The only thing capable of getting her to stop/slow the ranting is a swift pop to the jaw or a full on intervention from the SO.

Much like a vegan, but with nihilistic philosophy rather than glorified vegetarianism.

Well, no, asking her politely would also get her to stop, but nobody's actually TRIED that.  Although it results in different weird behavior if you do it wrong.  (see:Breakdown.)
