This is a forum dedicated to philosophy. I'd like to revive it.

Who is your favourite philosopher?

Why?

All philosophers are frauds. With actual TRUTH, philosophy is irrelevant. And...any philosopher who claims truth is subjective is either lying or stupid.

(let me add one thing)

UNLESS the truth of reality is that truth is malleable based on your belief (or the belief of the collective).

Damn it, I'm starting to sound like a fraud/philosopher.

Who decides the "actual Truth"? I hope it isn't you.....

There is only one truth.

There is no truth.

Perception defines your existence.

Get that and you understand the world you live in.

You say there is no truth, then you claim that what I perceive defines my existence.

Can you perceive the problem in your argument?

@olaru, that is a brilliant connection you made there between claiming to be a brutally handsome entertainer and William James the Philosopher, Psychologist and Pragmatist. Can you explain that connection?

There is no single answer.

1. Jesus
2. Hermes
3. Buddha
4. Thomas Jefferson
5. Bruce Lee

That's the top 5 places I look for inspiration and guidance.

Okay, now you 'Kant' make up your mind between James and Tzu.

I think I get you.

Typical entertainer.
