If Socrates and Nietzsche were left on an island with a one-person raft, which one would survive?

And why?

    nietzsche because socrates would have spent an hour rationalizing why and how to take the raft when nietzsche would have been a mile a way on the raft because he would have acted on intuition, grabed it and paddled like a mad-man.

    Socrates could talk Nietzsche into a nervous mania and a suicidal state in one hour without even whipping a horse to do it.

    Nietzsche would survive rather than Socrates. I would essentially say that one needs to look at each respective philosophies to say its a given.

    Two answers:

    1. Both, because nobody drowns on an island

    2. Nietzsche, because he's been dead for a shorter period of time, and his skeleton still has more power in it.

    Why would they need to leave the island?
