The quietest one with the least to say, no books written and sold and completely ignored by everyone. The one with the least amount of influence on
human thinking (historically or current). And rather no diplomas in philosophy. The most humble one, who doesn't even like being seen as a philosopher
or enlightened or having great intellectual insights. The one who craves no attention whatsoever and who doesn't make a living out of beguiling speech
and/or stroking egos (for example giving the ones that are listening to them or reading their stuff a false impression that it makes them smarter,
more openminded, insightful, enlightened, educated, knowledgeable, etc.).
I don't think anyone exists or has existed like that that could still be appropiately referred to as a philospher though, and if someone like that
existed, it would probably be hard for anyone to know them.
So for a shorter answer: I have no favorite philosopher. I'm not too impressed by blah-blah, fancily dressed up or otherwise.
Allthough I find that this philosopher going by the name W.L. Craig adequately responds to the philosopher in this video that lies about not being a
philosopher (he prefers being seen as a "scientist"); not that he's responding to that particular falsehood/lie:
Psychology: Dawkins&Krauss selling the philosophy
and contradiction that nothing is something
