He's actually a pretty good philosopher when you look past all the memes. I like him a lot myself.

Why are Plato and Aristotle only high tier? You may not care for their philosophies, but they're some of the most influential to ever live.

I'd swap them with Heidegger.
>>
>>695236
Because I didn't rank them by influence
>>
>>695236
Also, stoics, shit tier? Come on man. They may have had some weird ideas, but their ideas for dealing with the stresses of life are pretty goddamn good. They at least deserve Wtf tier.
>>
>>695243
Then what did you rank them by? An ill-conceived notion of their having a better philosophy?
>>
>>695243
Well, obviously, because Stirner would be much lower then. But influence should count for something, at least when you're talking about philosophers whose works formed the basis of western philosophy.

This is objective and you cannot refute it.

Actually even going by influence, Hegel and Nietzsche rank higher on today's philosophy. But that's besides the point.

Spengler goes in WE ARE DOOMED tier

I like Spoingler.
>>
>>695508
Not him, but what's wrong with Camus? His philosophy seems like a pretty decent, albeit bare-bones, way of approaching existential nihilism.
>>
>>695609
I'm getting sick of the Camus bashing meme on 4chan as well.

It's illogical and just bandwagon riding.
>>
>>695075
> Having tiers without explaining what you're ranking
We're /sci/ now.

Camus just seems more of a literary writer than a philosopher as such to me. What I derive from Camus is closer to Hemingway or Kafka than Kant or Spinoza or Husserl etc.

I prefer Camus to Sartre although the latter wrote works that are not narrative in form (eg L'etre et le Neant) that place him more firmly in the philosophical category.

>inb4 autists going "ACKSHUALLY..."

Yes, I know many philosophers have employed narrative modes as well, but unless you're retarded it's pretty easy to see the distinction between the didactic, argumentative style of philosophy on the one hand and novels and plays on the other.

Yes, the distinction isn't absolute, black and white, but it is real. Deal with it, you tedious hairsplitting faggots.

Yes, this board is actually this bad with the kneejerk contrarianism that I need to elaborate an innocuous statement like this so you fucking pedantic morons don't get triggered by it.
>>
Stirner, Schopenhauer and Plato should be top tier
>>
>>695694
>Plato

>the rabbit form somehow exists before rabbits as a species have evolved.
>>
>>695701
The forms are infinite and representative of everything there is and more
>>
>>695743
I do understand that, but to infer that a form exists as an actual thing rather than just a potential to be realised for the entire period prior to it's realisation, whenever that may occur seems like an inaccurate theory to describe reality as it exists rather than just what may exist.
>>
>>695743
>tfw waifu's are real
>>
>Actually do philosophy tier
Philosophers who debunk, who point out what's wrong and who use omission to remove what is wrong in philosophy

>Bullshitty woo-woo tier
Philosophers who 'confirm' what is 'true' and 'moral' and who use naive intervention to shove these 'truths' and 'values' down people's throats and completely ignore that they don't know everything and could be wrong about what they believe
>>
>>695624
It became cool to hate Camus on /lit/ so I'm not surprised its spread here.

This.

>>695765

Can you name a philosopher who does the former without doing the latter?
>>
>>695685
>Camus more like hem, kafka than Spinoza
You know I'd still call him a philosopher, but this makes total sense to me
>>
>>695075
>Shit tier
>sartre
I am willing to bet that you have never read any of his books and are merely putting him in that category because he's an existentialist.
>>
>>695860

Watch out, we got a badass over here.
>>
>>695860
I have read him. I also put Nietzsche and Heidegger in top tier so you're literally retarded
>>
>>695624
OP here, I literally never read anything about Camus on 4chan, so your thesis is bunk. I'm very well capable of determining Camus is a hack on my own.
>>
>>695814

David Hume

>implying there are concepts without philosophers

There is no uncontextual idea. Please stop with the "ideas can be distilled" memery.
