Whether it's Schopenhauer, Plato, Foucault, give me your favourite(s) and tell me why you credit such a person (or people).

A.C. Grayling. Bow before his might...

Seriously though, he's bringing Humanities back into mainstream university curriculum.

Actually, not too many really. Philosophy in general I like, but I rarely agree with anyone else's philosophies, which I guess is sort of the point. :P Maybe stephenage. Rather a junior at it, but he's a good GS friend of mine, so I count him! :P

I've read my decent shares of philosophers.

I think my views are closer to Jean-Paul Satre.

I have no idea what Philosophers are. Guess I've never been much of a fan of Philosophy, and the Philosophers that come up with their very own created Philosophy.

I'd think she'd find the idea of them quite interesting, given that they have "liberal" in the title. :P

Some philosophical and ethical subject... All I hear about it is that it is boring, and you learn the habits of some great old philosophers and their view at stuff.

They had the right idea...up until they started eating worms. They went from Plato, to Bear Grylls.
