    Stumbled across this site which is 'the history of philosophy summarised and visualised'. It's basically a 'map' of some of the main ideas of philosophers with links to those who express similar or contrasting views:

    The History of Philosophy
    This is my summary of the history of (Western) philosophy showing the positive/negative connections between some of the key ideas/arguments of the philosophers. It’s a never-ending work-in-progress.
    To browse it in detail (with interaction) and to read more about it, you can go to The History of Philosophy.

    I've seen maps like that before. They can be very helpful, depending on how you use them. Thanks for posting that.

    He was and is profoundly influential. I find that he is one of those "industry names"; not well known to the public like Marx or Freud, but philosophers and semioticists and linguists certainly know, because he did groundwork for multiple fields at a key moment in history.

    Aye, she-whose-name-must-not-be-spoken-on-RF is the one I think of.
    To be that hated, one must be significant.

    Btw, my criterion for evaluating philosophers or anyone who opines
    thereupon isn't that they're "correct", but rather interesting.

    But Rival is indeed among the more interesting philosophers.

    I might be proving your point, but Ayn Rand? Seriously? Objectivism is hilariously bad.

    It's bad to those who dislike it....just as I despise Marx (Karl, not Groucho).
    Philosophers are a diverse lot....we're all going to hate some & like others.
    And some wags won't even admit that some qualify for the title. Kurt Vonnegut
    is my all time favorite, but I doubt anyone else considers him to even be one.
    (He never joined the union. Blackballed by Majicthise & Vroomfondel no doubt.)

    Philosophy begin in Greece

    The western philosophical tradition began in ancient Greece in the 6th century BCE. The first of these philosophers are called "Presocratics" which designates that they came before Socrates.
