Mode of presentation seems fine.
There are a number of false positives. As far as I am able to ascertain the list of search terms is as follows:

The following page, an article on 'Farces et moralités', a series of plays by Octave Mirbeau, indicates a first example of a false positive. It qualified on the basis of the terms 'moral-' and 'realism'. 'Morality' does not occur in the article outwith of the context 'morality plays', indicating one, rather neat, solution.
Jan Nederveen Pieterse's article matched with 'dialectic', 'hermeneutic' and 'logic', despite the theme of the subject's work being largely sociological. 'Logic' occurs only in the references section in the title of a book by Kraidy, M., 'Hybridity: the cultural logic of globalisation.' The other two terms are used in a manner that seems typical of many academic disciplines.
There seem to be several such suspect terms, including...
ethic, aesthetic, deduction, dialectic, heurisitic, idealist, logic, materialism, pragmatist, realist
Perhaps then, these terms should carry a somewhat lower weighting, and terms with a higher degree of specificity, a higher. For this to work however, the corpus of terms will definitely need to be expanded. Orthorhombic (talk) 20:58, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
I am concerned by the bot's bent towards Western, materialist, rationalist philosophy. The following figures should definitely be considered for inclusion:
Mikhail Bakhtin Mikhail Bakunin Pavel Florensky Vladimir Lossky Maimonides Vladimir Solovyev Baruch Spinoza - if he hasn't been already Theodor Adorno Hannah Arendt Walter Benjamin Max Horkheimer Emmanuel Lévinas Leo Strauss Henri Bergson John Duns Scotus
That is to say nothing of Indian, Chinese, African etc. philosophy, only one or two figures off the the top of my head that might help remedy the aforementioned tilt. Orthorhombic (talk) 21:36, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
The article in question (Neuastenberg) is part of a Category called "Wittgenstein Land". The inclusion is no doubt due to a false positive caused by the name Wittgenstein. Pollinosisss (talk) 15:04, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
