    Default Who is your favorite philosopher?

    Mine is Arthur Schopenhauer. Being a really bad pessimist and misanthrope, I can relate to him more than any other philosopher. I fell in love with him after reading the short On the Suffering of the World.

    I wish I could read his works in German, though :\

    nice topic.

    well...

    kant disciplined my mind and nietzsche took an axe to it. theirs were the theories i most enjoyed analyzing and debating in ug/grad school. unfortunately, like people, philosophies start to devolve with enough examination, so in the end i went with mathematical logic.

    and in that realm, kurt gödel reigns supreme.


    p.s. the greeks were fun but who wants to be poring over dusty old manuscripts and apocrypha?

    Schopenhauer is amusing, in a very cute way.

    I liked nietzsche for his almost german-like efficiency(j/k, lololol) and great storytelling, but (Bertrand) Russell and Sartre and R.A. Wilson influenced my worldview the most bestest.

    Rene Descartes.

    Why? - Because he proved the most basic of all things.
    He came to the conclusion that, if I am here, then there is something somewhere saying that I'm here, so I must exist, because, here I am. I think, therefore I am, or Cogito Ergo Sum.

    The human race on occasion needs someone to discover something so basic to give us a kick up the back side and enlighten us... From time to time...
