    Cleopatra and Nefertiti were reputed to be hotties.

    I did read an article that she:

    Wasn't actually that 'fit'. Was supposed to be nothing like that but most historical royals have needed an ego massage now and again.

    I've been trying to uncover an attractive philosopher for about the last 10 minutes. Seems it is a profession exclusively populated by unattractive bearded men. Of course I should have already known this. Come on, find one!

    I'm not prepared to put my pic up yet!

    Surely:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rousseau

    Even I'm getting a bit steamy from that! Socrates was famous for being ugly!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socrates

    Few more hotties maybe?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wittgenstein

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Aquinas (ignore the hair)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Bacon_%28philosopher%29

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niccol%C3%B2_Machiavelli

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton (Known for his science, but still was a philosopher!)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquis_de_Sade (FULL ON KINK FACTOR!)

    Women are a bit harder to find....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Cavendish

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Anne_Finch_Conway

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisabeth_of_Bohemia,_Princess_Palatine

    Brian Cox. I'm sure he's aware of that tree falling in the forest crap. That's the entry exam isn't it?

    Almost, it is a question of epistemology, the nature of reality. How can we be sure of unperceived existence. A similar epistemological example would be to ask how can we be sure 'The Matrix' film isn't true reality and we are trapped in a make believe world.

    Personally, it's not my favoured stuff, too spacey for me, Metaphysics is even worse, bona fide mental at times. It confuses possible with probable too much in my opinion and gets tedious. I prefer political and moral philosophy myself!

    Oooo and isn't Brian Cox a physicist? If that is the one you mean then the falling tree makes a sound as any other object does.

    Rousseau - I hope that's a hat - or is this where Wino gets her inspiration?

    Wittgenstein looks like he just came out of Alcatraz..

    hahahahaah Aquinas! I'm not sure if it is possible to ignore the hair, as if the Catholicism wasn't bad enough!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Saint_Thomas_Aquinas.jpg

    I appreciate the novel inclusion of Socrates the ugger and will say that Newton is the best of that bunch.

    He his. And also a smug git. Called Brian. But anyway the tree doesn't make a noise, it just makes the air move in a highly compressed wave form. It's not sound until it's heard. Either way, it can always be answered with pure distilled science!

    Take your sciency answers - it's not about the actual sound...

    In philosophy we can''t generally claim loads of people as 'ours', doesn't pay very well this thinking-alone-and-writing-it-down malarky so people like Newton are famous for certain other ideas... But he was still a philosopher! O well! I guess I might have to enter the Philosophical Sex Machine Hunk-a-thon 2011 alone. At least I'll win!

    Loads of people love him. I don't. I can imagine having a debate about anything with him.... and if ever close to losing...

    WIN!

    Well, yes. Ok your explanation of sound was more correct... my point was to explain that he isn't one of us!

    I also think that if Engels beard wasn't bigger than his face (or Canada) then he would be alright:

    Oops! Forgot:

    My lecturer is a world expert on him so obviously references him a bit... Don't know how I forgot. Oops!

    This explains it:

    "This morning a barber came round and Herr Pastor [Georg Gottfried Treviranus] wanted me to have a shave for he said I looked quite revolting. But I do not do so. Father [Friedrich Engels] said that I should leave my razors locked up until I need them and he left a fortnight ago today and my beard certainly cannot have grown so much in that time. And now I shall not shave until I have a moustache as black as a raven. And you know, Mother told Father to give me a razor to take with me and Father answered that would be tempting me to start shaving, and he would buy me some himself in Manchester, but I don’t use them on principle."
