    Why wouldn't Voltaire be potentially electrified by his work?

    Now that you mention it, he was always amped up while he wrote.

    A genuine ENTP philosopher. His archrival Rousseau was INFP with INFJ tendencies (Social Contract and Confessions are a strange blend of works).

    Maybe he just needed to discharge his stress.

    Simone Weil liked to live her philosophy behind a veil of parsimony.

    Haha. I enjoyed the Simone Weil reference. Have you ever read her work?

    My brother is a big fan. He's written a number of articles on her work. Also on Chesterton.

    No, but I can see why she would be the only great spirit of her time. I might set up a rendezvous with her one day.

    Samuel Beckett should have written the play Waiting for Godel.

    It's a play about how Einstein, Popper, Tarski are waiting for Godel to show up for a game of tennis doubles but he never turns up.

    The next time they see him they brush aside his excuses with Kurt replies.

    Deleuze gives great insight into Kant. Check it out (there are subtitles available):

    I think reducing Hegel's philosophy to a bagel is strangely apt in its own twisted way, because Hegel is all about the circle: thesis-antithesis-synthesis-thesis-antithesis-synthesis-thesis....

    Anyway, I'm probably overthinking this.

    I'm surprised no one(at least to my knowledge) has mentioned Francis Bradley yet. But at the moment I can't think of a good Bradley joke...nothing that appears is ever what it seems, I guess

    Why specifically surprised at the non mention of Bradley? There's a lot of philosophers we haven't mentioned here.

    If Gilbert Ryle saw this thread... boy would he get riled up!

    I remember reading about the frustrations his philosopher peers would have with him.

    • There's also this fun description: "Bradley was a leading figure in this movement of original reappropriation of alien ideas, which he explicitly promoted as the sole antidote to dogmatism and intellectual sclerosis " (ref:https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/bradley/)
    • Also I remember hearing quite a few Bertrand Russell jokes in school in the past, I just assumed a natural link to joking on his predecessor
    I mean... aliens, man...aliens...lol ok I'm done
