Who was the greatest philosopher of the 20th century?
I don't know about greatest but Sartre was definitely one of the coolest. Are those Bugs Bunny pictures behind him?
Not because the 20th century was lacking but because Wittgenstein is one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Give the world consciousness a few centuries to catch up and then he'll have the title of prophet to go along with his boundless genius.
It's not that I'm centuries ahead, it's that Wittgenstein's influence hasn't been felt for long enough to have sunk into the world soul
When seeing language as symbolic logic and understanding how this relates to basic set theory becomes common sense the Wittgensteinian era can begin

>“Set theory is wrong” and nonsensical (PR §174), says Wittgenstein, because it presupposes a fictitious symbolism of infinite signs (PG 469) instead of an actual symbolism with finite signs.
You're probably right, though.
Honestly, Wittgenstein? It sees to me that his best insights filled a very specific niche.
Dude, what in the flying fuck-all are you talking about? Wittgenstein's comments on aesthetics are sparse and widely dispersed, and Kant only ever claimed that the cultivation of an aesthetic sense was a desirable prerequisite to a moral education, not that it was the 'basis'of all philosophy (which is Critique).
