First off, let me tell the know-it-all types out there this.
*This member of my dear Proletariat not only has a deespyeep philosphical soul inside his Gen-X wrapper, he has also been classical-ly educated on the subject matter.
I.E. Let’s go toe-to-toe on everything philo- from Immanuel Kant 2 Herbert Marcuse to (my FAV modern philosopher)
Now, I’m not so sure I would call Russell Brand a “modern philosopher” but hey, who am I to judge.
In the meantime, Here is a list of Philo-dude/ettes you probably should know & why:
- GIORGIO AGAMBEN
- Political: Two “Americas” Answered -The State of Exception,
POWER MAKES EXCEPTIONS OUT OF PEOPLE IT DOES NOT LIKE IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY DOING AWAY WITH THEM.
- Also see “Necropolitics” by Achille Mbembe
- FALGUNI SHETH:
Is Race A Biological Category or A Social Construct?,
Read-Towards A Political Philosophy of Race .
- BERYS GAUT:
Uniting-Philo:The Creator of CREATE-ivity,Read- Emotions & Ethics
Simone de Beauvoir
- Socio-Female Existentialist: Women Throughout the Ages,The Ethics Of Ambiguitity

- Elizabeth Ashford**
- Karl Marx…yes, Karl Marx!
- Talia Bettcher
- Jeff McMahn
Q: Who the hell has the luxury time to sit around thinking about philosophy? I’ve got food to put on the table & diapers to buy?!?!
A: Good question & you are 100% right! Very few,maybe 1 or 2, have ever been able to dedicate themselves & deliver fully, their soul-passion while still being anchored to wage-slave-dom.
Clearly, it is damn near impossible to “think outside the box” when we are so entire-ly ruled by one.
Q: Does that mean there aren’t any Proletariat philosophers out there?
A: Of course not. Chances are,though, we will never ever hear from them.😯
