Game idea

I am just throwing this out there, but it would be cool if there was a game that somehow pits the various theories of Western Philosophy against each other. I'm not sure, at this point, what such a game would entail. What the player is or what they do (or the AI, for that matter).

It would be pretty neat to make an engaging philosophy-based game. 

*Note: If I were to make a game like this, it would focus only on Western Philosophy. I am not grounded enough in Eastern or other philosophies to the level in which I could put a game together.

So would this be like a simulation of various nations revolved around different philosophies like maybe a stoic, militaristic, populist nation bordering a utilitarian hyper-libertarian state bordering an anarchist-socialist state and seeing how they interact diplomatically and militarily?

I’m not sure how much it would be bound by nations. I’m seeing it as more of a game on philosophical thought than focused on politics.

This was definitely in my mind. There's a game on Steam called Orbi Universo, that I think would be a good model. 

Hadn't seen that one, definitely worth a try.  Abstract civilization. 

For a time (if this would be a game based on a timeline), philosophies or schools of thought would develop independently due to geography, only to start melding and taking on attributes. Similar to cultures merging.

What's the end goal, the global dominant ideology/philosophy?

I don't know. Don't really have time to think about it or the next game until around June or July. But I'll leave this thread open for ideas to spread.
