The Greatest Philosopher

Digg!

BBC is conducting a worldwide poll on who's the greatest philosopher of all time. 'You can listen to an advocate put forward a case for each philosopher and read philosopher profiles before making your decision.'

The choices are:
Vote here. I was divided between Kant and Kierkegaard... I had to pick Kant. I just have to.
Immanuel Kant was born in Königsberg in Prussia and never left the town during his life. He became Professor of Logic and Metaphysics at its university and one pupil commented that "nothing worth knowing was indifferent to him".

Kant started a revolution in philosophy by examining how the mind constructed our knowledge of the objective world and the limits thereof. He set out his thinking in three critiques - The Critique of Pure Reason (1781); The Critique of Practical Reason (1788); and The Critique of Judgment (1790).

In the Critique of Pure Reason Kant argued that objects in the world must conform to our innate understanding of them. Reason makes experience possible by imposing upon raw sense data certain categories of understanding.
- Anthony Grayling

I wonder who's the Philippines best philosopher?
