This Week’s Mtg: Most Influencial Philosophers (7/8/10)

We may have lost some of our more philosophy-literate members.  But I still think we can do a good job here, especially if we keep two things in mind: (1) we’re talking most influential philosophers, not the “best” or most famous or “the ones with the most elaborate philosophical system;” and (2) we can define philosopher however we want. 

Here are a few “most influential philosophers” lists I found on the internet.  I can’t vouch for the authors, but at least this gets us thinking in the right direction. 

You can look up any of the names you see on this site, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
