A piece in the Times alerts us to a 'contest' BBC's Radio 4 is having to vote for the greatest philosopher. They're currently in the process of weeding down the top twenty to a final few and you can listen to some guy make a case for each one and cast your own vote (I think they should have a swimsuit competition) and 'the usual suspects' from the ancient world are there, although it is surprising (maybe) to see that Epicurus is in the top 20 but there's no Stoic.
