    I see the poll has closed. It seemed like a narrow range of choices which is why I plugged in Lao-Tze but if I had to confine to the confinements I guess I'd go with Kung Fu Tze as the next closest thing.

    Odd that such a question would have a closing date though. "Fast food filosophy"?

    I'd say Jeremy Bentham (Utilitarianism) and Kant (the Categorical Imperative) are the most influential in Ethics.

    I'm sensing an anti-German flare here.

    Many of the best philosophers were German, like Kant, Leibniz, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Christian Wolff etc.

    Aristotle. Aristotle is the founding father of all universities.
