This template is used to provide biographical information on anyone who might be considered a philosopher. This template is generally superseded by officeholder templates (if the philosopher held political or other public office; e.g. Alan Greenspan).

Parameters

All parameters are optional, and if left blank will not appear in the infobox:

Microformats

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583).

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.
