Infobox philosopher
Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to provide biographical information on anyone who might be considered a philosopher. If the philosopher held or holds a political or other public office (e.g. Alan Greenspan), {{Infobox officeholder}} is probably more suitable.

To use this template, copy the text above to the top of a biography article. Note that parameter names are lowercase.

Parameters

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

Microformat

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). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

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

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name

  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • role

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

End of Infobox person

Alternatively {{infobox philosopher}} may be embedded within {{infobox person}}, using |module in the latter, as shown here. This allows the use of more fields by drawing on both infoboxes. For an example, see Hannah Arendt.
