Influential Influences

Well, this topic is something that I have been thinking about for some time now. After a conversation with one of my philosophy tutors, Andrés Vaccari, I started to think about what philosophers influence me and what works by philosophers do I want familiarise myself with . In the process I have compiled an extensive list of 39 (yes 39!) philosophers throughout history of whom I will endeavor to interpret the works of, and intern come to my own unique brand of philosophy.

At this point my major interests lie with ontology, being, metaphysics, hermeneutics, ethics, hermeneutical and existential phenomenology, and language. I also have minor interests (by comparison) in continental philosophy, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, consciousness and AI. Below is the long list of philosophers whom I will be delving into as part of my philosophical and literary journey. Hopefully as time progresses this list will be filtered down to about 10 or so and my motives will become clear with regards to why I am influenced by these philosophers. For those who have any suggestions or comments on the philosophers listed below, please feel free to leave a comment.
