A Litany of Philosophers

I don't know whether these photographs of recent philosophers by Steve Pyke are now old hat on the internet. I found them just today.

For those who do know them already, you may find it amusing to guess my choices.

1. Best blurb.
2. Most pathetic (word meant literally).
3. Most approachable.
4. Most interesting.
5. Most petty, alas.
6. Funniest.
7. Most inviting reconsideration.
8. Most admirable.
9. Best intentioned.
10. Le Penseur.

This juxtaposition is crushing: this, and then this.

Oh, and though not a philosopher, largest glasses.
