I don't have a favorite philosopher. As with music or art, preference for me is something that changes with the immediate circumstances. I like anyone who can cogently support a useful position on an engaging topic without letting personal conviction dominate the argument. That said, I tend to find secular and humanist philosophers engaging.
I'm always on the lookout for opportunities to engage in recreational intellectual discussion.
I define philosophy as the attempt to find answers to questions that don't lend themselves to empirical obvservation (which are better answered by science) or logical proof (which are better answered by mathematics).
