His Epistemology is useful if you want to understand Hume/Kant and later Anglo thinkers, but his politics and overall philosophy are pretty bad imo. I much prefer Spinoza/Hume/Leibniz if we're talking Early Moderns.

You're not going to like the answer but it's not Carnap by a longshot. It's Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, Camus, Foucault, Derrida, stuff like that. Super basic and continental stuff. Basically, /lit/ is exactly the same as Reddit because both are made for babies who don't read.

The answer is Russell if anyone bothered to read him, but the real answer is probably Diogenes. Nothing but quips, has that god awful edgelord comic book quality that Reddit loves, and is just obscure enough where they can tell their friends about le epic barrel man and laugh when some shitbird on Instagram posts some plucked chicken for the thousandth time. Diogenes can't be read because all we have are anecdotes, so theres never a risk of having to actually have a substantive discussion about him. Its the safest possible choice for the savvy pseud.

He legitimately deserves more attention, I think if you like Kant and Fichte there's actually something to Carnap worth investigating. I can say more if necessary.

Idiot. I'm not calling Kant and Hegel and Heidegger philosophically basic. The fact is that very basic people go for them first, and not for Carnap. Stop being stupid. That's what I mean by "basic," it's not a value judgment or even a judgment about difficulty. Just look at this board or anywhere else. People gravitate towards some things and not others, they stay at a surface level and don't dig deeper til later if at all.

No it doesn't. I bring it up when you people start implying I must be new to philosophy. It's a lose-lose though, apparently. If you say "I'm not new to philosophy, I can prove it with these credentials" people start acting like it's bragging or some idiocy. No, it's just saying a fact so the other idiot doesn't pretend like he's better. Don't bother turning it around. Obviously very little rests on it, I'm not pretending I'm automatically better than anyone.

Funny you should say that, because that is my exact situation as well. Its weird you felt the need to bring it up though. Calling Hegel "basic" is the last thing anyone who has ever read Hegel would say. Even academics I know who specialize in Hegel will say hes nearly impossible to break into without significant effort and secondary commentary.

>He legitimately deserves more attention
I agree with you here. Any analytic who likes Carnap should at least give Heidegger a try (despite the personal history between the two of them) and most continentals could stand to check out Carnap.

>>18181693
This means nothing. More people know Kant memes rather than take the time to slog through the critiques, and this has nothing to do with availability. You can buy a DSM at Barnes & Noble too, does this mean that most people posting mental health memes are versed in it?

>> No.18182237

>>18182202
Just check what I said here:
>>18181721
I understand your point and I would not want to suggest Hegel is philosophically basic. Basic people read Hegel, which is different. And very smart and intelligent people also read Hegel. I like Hegel a lot and I like everyone I listed as a matter of fact.
>Any analytic who likes Carnap should at least give Heidegger a try (despite the personal history between the two of them) and most continentals could stand to check out Carnap.
