I should of said, not just anyone can be considered to be one of the great philosophers
Of those on the list, Aristotle is the obvious choice. My personal favorite is Alfred Ayer, in particular his great book Language, Truth, and Logic.
I'm going to have to check that book out. I like John Locke. He believed that knowledge is determined only by experience derived from sense perception. " whatever I write, as soon as I discover it not to be true, my hand shall be the forwardest to throw it into the fire."
Empiricists are dopes. The senses are easily deceived.
So are people in general.
I agree. My choice is Locke.
Well, if by effective you mean to have the greatest number of believers in their philosophy, then you'd have to go with Jesus Christ followed by Muhammad. You seem to have left off Augustine as well. Of those listed, I'd go with Locke.
You forgot George Carlin.
I'm just curious about who people would choose out of the choices I had listed.
I go with Locke too.
