I like Camus a lot due to the simplicity of his thoughts

My favorites are Socrates and Spinoza. Socrates needs no explanation. I love Spinoza because he believed god is the universe and I really appreciated how, as a western philosopher, he had a lot of eastern ideals.

Steven Deeds is a modern-day Renaissance man. He’s got his own website (of which he offers his music, philosophy and additional communications). I urge each of you to check out his plethora of contributions.

@sonofsaul, I am reading Beyond Good and Evil right now and I am loving it. Your paper sounds really interesting (I also love fight club), could you send it to me if you get the chance?

@cj420weeks, Myself of course. I mean, yeah, I am influenced by the likes of Plato, Aristotle, and Einstein(though he was nota philosopher but he had his own revolutionary ideas which to me are philosophies) but I do not take full control or action into them, I am passionate in these ideals but I go with the vague idea and expand it all in to one collected idea and form my own.

Through all the truths in the world and proven mysteries it is only YOU that can unfold your inner truth in the depths of the soul. We also come to realize that we all share something in common with the greats; we were once related in forms of ancestory and the Tree of life. Be your own philospher=)

A lot of my initial interest was due to listening to Eyedea a lot. So, Michael Larsen.

Egocentrism is strong in this thread. Folks folks folks. You can appreciate yourself and love other people too!

At the minute it is Steven Pinker. His Ted Talks have been mind blowing and echoed so much of what I have recently thought.

Well I couldn’t pick just one so a few favorites are Nietzsche, Kafka, Camus, Sartre, and like 8 others. They are all so brilliant

I’m well aware he does was not known to be regarded by such a title (he was known for spending 14 years of his life writing a 1 and a quarter million word novel while in a narrow bed), but MARCEL PROUST definitely wins it for me. i have read about almost all of the philosophers spoken of here (besides for some divine misfortune Nietsche) and Proust is definitely someone who has made done quite a lot for me in terms of philosophical reasoning. i would elaborate, but i would just prefer to suggest a book ‘how Proust can change your life’ by Alain De Botton, which i have read almost three times now! i seriously recommend it. Alain is also a brilliant writer.
if anyone would like me to chuck up summary then holla!

@brandonphillips,

I recognize the brilliance of The Myth of Sisyphus, however The Stranger is rather poorly done.

OT:

Rand and Tzu of course
