Could Emma Goldman qualify as a philosopher -if so - "If I can t dance I am not coming to your revolution! is my kind of philosophy!

Noam Chomsky is my fave rave too.


Mine, is Marcus Arileous...even if he was a man! He could have done anything he wanted, but he struggled to be a just person and he worked at it every day!


At 19, the Power of Myth series, on PBS with Bill Moyers, opened my eyes to all of commonalities between, what I always figured were, man made stories anyway.


George Carlin


Irving Yalom - a living existential psychotherapist who wrote some really good books, like Staring at the Sun- Overcoming the Terror of Death, Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept.

Betrand Russell.

Albert Camus

Hermann Hesse - he wasn't acutally a philosopher, but his novels dealt a lot with accepting the shadow material inside us and he wrote beautiful lyrical prose. From Wikipedia: "His best-known works include Demian, Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game, each of which explores an individual's search for authenticity, self-knowledge and spirituality."


Kahlil Gibran & Rumi


Frances Bacon, the primacy of existence,


Shakyamuni Buddha, f.k.a. Siddhartha Gautama.


Albert Camus. When we read "The Stranger" in high school I was the only one in the class who got it.

@WishYouWereHere Helped me to understand the concept of existentialism and insight into living in the moment.


Bertrand Russell


Any of the Existenialists, Nihilists, Absurdists.
