Enlighten me, dear monkeys. Could be living or dead, though as one of my favorite comedians said: "I prefer my gurus to be dead" (meaning you can see their full body of work, and for those that are living you never know who might go a bit looney and start their own cult)
Also, i have a considerable amount of travel coming up, recommended reading list? So far I have gathered up some of the works of these fine scholars* (it's quite a variation as you can see):
-Obviously Aristotle and Plato
in a different category:
*And and some have pointed out, my definition of philosopher is quite loose, so i'm renaming this post: "Who are some great minds with great philosophies on a topic that I should read up on"
Any female philosophers I should add to the list?
So many good religious works/philosophers out there from days past but i'm not well informed on the topic, open to any recommendations in this realm as well (would be a good balance for those atheists on the list). Bhagavad Gita is one i'd like to start with.
