MOVING TO FRONT FROM 2 DAYS AGO--LOTS OF INTERESTING CONTRIBUTIONS, MORE WELCOME
Reader Kenneth Lakritz calls my attention to this item from Prospect Magazine in which various philosophers and authors choose their favorite living philosopher. (Of course, we settled the question of the greatest living philosopher "scientifically" with a poll awhile back about who should get a Nobel Prize in philosophy.) Some pick themselves, i.e., they pick philosophers whose views are similar to their own. Other choices are more eclectic: Anthony Gottlieb, for example, names Simon Blackburn. So who is your favorite living philosopher and why? I'll only post responses that come with a full name and valid e-mail address attached, no anonymous comments! Submit your comment only once, it may take awhile to appear.
