50k for minion name (in Contests)

Xion[3-14159] June 12 2006 8:19 AM EDT

I would like to give one of my minions a new name. Submit as many times as you want.

The catch.....must have to do with philosophy...ie (nihilism, atheism, idealism)
does not have to be an "ism"

will give 50k to the person who gives me a name I like.

It would be helpful to know which of your minions you plan to rename. For example I think simply 'Consciousness' would be appropriate for your enchanter.

Socrates is a great name and fits in with the theme.

However, if you're just looking for a word that has a philosophy background then here's a few.
Jurisprudence, Transcendental, Casuistry or Axiology.

Not an "ism" to be found amongst them either :)

Tabla Rasa (nice wall minion name)

Egalitarianism (not sure if this is actually phil related, but WHAT a word)


n : a belief (or system of beliefs) accepted as authoritative by
some group or school [syn: doctrine, philosophy, school
of thought]

Personally I'd name the char Ism and name minions a doctrine, a philosophy, and a school of thought

These both count, imo, but you're always free to make your own judgement. ^^

Xion[3-14159] June 12 2006 2:05 PM EDT

Axiology Poststructuralism and Satire are in the lead so far.

Ubermensch - A German word often found in the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche (A German philosopher). The term has a lot to do with his Philosophy in "Thus Spoke Zarathustra". The word itself is often translated as "Superman" but could also be read as "Over-man" or "Above-Human". Note this term has nothing to do with comic book heroes, but rather something much more meaningful.

Alternatively you could choose the name of "Zarathustra" seeing as the book is a narrative about a man of the same name.

I'm sure you will agree that either term is suitable for a minion name that has a philosphical meaning.

Have another drink and forget about it.

Works for me as a philosophy anyway.....

Nerevas June 12 2006 4:46 PM EDT

Progmatism, Holism, Neurotheology.

Xion[3-14159] June 13 2006 9:41 AM EDT

poststructuralism is my pick inless a better one is submit before the night is over

[T]Vestax June 13 2006 11:57 AM EDT

I don't see how a philosophy mainly interested in the interpretation of texts within its cultural setting is the winning choice for a minion name. Please explain your basis for choosing so that I might find you the name you are looking for.

Do you care about the meaning behind the term? Do you want something that just sounds cool? Does Latin or Greek tickle your fancy? Throw me a bone here.
