This navbox is intended for very sparing use. Only the major branches of philosophy should include it. Pontiff Greg Bard (talk) 00:20, 12 June 2009 (UTC)


Plato, Kant, Nietzsche. Is this representative, is there some rationale behind this? (talk) 18:40, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I came here to suggest replacing Neitzsche with someone who's equally influential to Analytic and Continental philosophy since those are the two modern currents, but I don't know nearly enough to suggest anyone better. Tolstoyan at Heart (talk) 16:45, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Same; Nietzsche does seem out of place. ‑‑YodinT 23:45, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Justification of additions[edit]

I have added Indian, Chinese and Buddhist philosophy to the sidebar. It was clearly eurocentric, having various western philosophical movements (including scholasticism, a point anyone attempting to remove Buddhist philosophy because it is associated with a religion should note) but only the one token "eastern philosophy" link. These three definitely represent major currents of philosophical thought in Asia and indeed, is part of the philosophical tradition of mankind as a whole. (Javierfv1212 - Sabbe Satta Sukhi Hontu)
