Okay, here's a really good hint: Notice that the philosopher names are in alphabetic order.

Everyone can have an additional guess for each remaining philosopher. Oh, heck, it's Alex's birthday -- take two! :D

Here is the overall list, with 1, 3, 4, 9, 13, 16, and 23 remaining. (Remember, they are in alphabetical order.)

1.

2. Aristotle

3.

4.

5. Descartes

6. Engels

7. Epicurus

8. Hegel

9.

10. Hobbes

11. Hume

12. Kant

13.

14. Marx

15 Nietzsche

16.

17. Plato

18. Ayn Rand

19. Sartre

20. ADS

21. Socrates

22. Spinoza

23.

Oops. You were posting while I was writing. (V for Voltaire is out of alphabetic order.)

But, you still get two more guesses for each philosopher, James.

No on Seneca and Plotinus, but Aquinas it is. 5 points for James!

So we still have 3, 4, 9, 13, 16, and 23 remaining.

Not Compte or Ockham, but Berkeley and Heraclitus are absolutely correct. 10 more points for James. Congratulations!

All that's left now are 4, 13, 16, and 23.

I do not know the answers but I wanted to wish Alex a Happy Birthday. I also hope you enjoy your birthday and someday fulfill having your picture placed next to the likes of Ayn Rand, Leonard Peikoff, Aristotle and John Locke.

Evidently, for you, Ray, one is all it takes. :D Leibniz congratulates you! 5 points for Ray.

Now we're down to only 4, 16, and 23.

I've had by guesses for #23, and it never occurred to me that there was some likeness of him, but (for someone else) maybe Thales is a good guess, i.e. earlier than Zeno and alphabetically after Spinoza.

Gee, Rose, if you are right you could have held out for assistance points. :D
