A meme, that can be traced back to Blogosophy, is haunting the philosophy blogs, and is now appearing here ...
The question has been asked: 'Which five philosophers works would you take with you to a desert island, given that you are probably going to be trapped there for a very long time?' To make the process of selection as easy as possible, you can take with you their complete works (however they may be concieved ...).
My list would probably be:
I. Michel de Montaigne
II. Niccolo Machiavelli
III. Michel Foucault
IV. Albert Camus
V. Bertrand Russell
(I get the feeling that I possibily would not be the sort of person that you would want to meet after some time on an island with these as my company ...)
Now, who would constitute your desert island five?
