Marx is.

He's overrated amongst his fanboys, but vastly underrated amongst his critics.

Who can really do the general accounting right with such a polarizing man?
>>
No. He was right about everything.

Marx is overrated but I wouldn't call him a philosopher. Philosophers are smart.

> Marx overrated.

No, Nietzsche isn’t overrated. People tend to blow him out of proportion without actually accessing the text and spout buzz-wordy quotes. Have to agree with previous anon: >>76977

It's Saul Kripke
he stole his whole modal program from Ruth Barcan Marcus
his """Wittgenstein interpretation""" is one of the worst academic texts I have ever encountered he talks about Wittgenstein's "fundamental problem presented in the investigations" (he seems to think it may have been titled the Philosophical Investigation by the looks of it) and his "proposed theory" (yes he uses the word theory in talking about wittgenstein). People think his interpretation so laughable they call it Kripkenstein (like Hubert Dreyfus' interpretation of Heidegger, Dreydegger)
in one of his papers he legitimately argues "IF MINDS AND BRAINS ARE NECESSARILY IDENTICAL, THEN WHY IS IT THAT I CAN IMAGINE PAIN NOT BEING C-FIBER SIMULATION?" (I'm not even kidding)
also he's an orthodox jew
>>
He's a lot of fun to read and got so close to discovering the scapegoat mechanism, but he found himself on the other side of it and instead went insane.

Definitely overrated in the sense of how he is worshiped by edgelords and hipsters who have never actually read him. Also overrated in terms of theory and positive contributions (all his best contributions are negative)

All that said I like him and enjoy reading him

Nice.
Because Marxism is dynamic and its analysis has significant merit in all the dynastic forms of capitalism, including late capitalism of the 21st century.

No. He is.

He was cool. just bitter and edgy

the most overrated philosopher will always be Sartre.

Nigga pls. Also, close second is either Plato or Descartes.

philosophy is not literature.

I like him because he's pretty much stoicism and nihilism combined and both are logical.

I've seen it and I disagree with it, keep your emotional self-discovery bedtime story books to yourself and stop conflating it with philosophy.

If he is overrated, then he can't be too overrated to cause such controversies as the question the OP raises.
Being the source of such praise and derision shows a certain consistency with his own philosophy that other philosophers like Schopenhauer didn't maintain.

I'd rate him higher as an author who wrote edgy, cool sounding stuff for an adolescent audience.
As a philosopher he's a real mixed bag of a kind, too inconsistent and self-contradictory but maybe that's supposed to be the appeal?

Great read but not more than that.

delete this fucking anus board, the amount of /int/ and /pol/ plebs is disgusting
>>
>>89167
>>mfw /phil/ on this board
three threads max on the catalog at the moment; all shit.

By the way, the solution isn't to delete the board, as evidenced by >>84711. People seem to be enjoying it, those who wanted /his/, that is.

What should happen is removing '& Humanities'
