    Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Nietzsche. I could as soon mention one of them alone as eat a sandwich without bread.

    I used to be a big fan of Socrates, Kierkegaard, Kant and Thoreau but lately I find myself more attracted to more practical\pragmatic thinkers like Montaigne, gracian, Emerson, Machiavelli, Nietzsche.

    - Søren Kierkegaard
    - Ludwig Wittgenstein
    - René Descartes
    - St. John of the Cross
    - Teresa of Ávila
    - Apostle Paul (believe it or not)
    - John of Patmos
    - Blaise Pascal
    - Charles Darwin
    - C.S. Lewis
    - Albert Camus
    - Niccolò Machiavelli

    Rand's sort of a mess IMO... great as a stepping stone but to someplace better, I think.
    Nietzsche challenges my preconceptions, so I need to read some more of him.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I used to like the existentialists but I've got to be honest they've worn out a bit and I'm more of a determinist than they were, in the main my stock response is Freud, Jung, Marx, Machavelli but there's others Sun Tzu, Balthazar, the almost all the pocket wisdom guys, I like reading Mill and Chris Rock has always made me laugh

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture
