Prospect Magazine has released its annual list of the most influential thinkers in the world.
8 of the top 20 are philosophers.
Go go go Liz Anderson!
These annual lists go back to 2005, and I want to make it my job, first, to make sure that I've read something or other by the philosophers that have appeared in them. (Yeah, I've got sabbatical coming up…)
And second, that by the time they graduate, the philosophy majors I teach have at least heard of most if not all of them.
