Some of my web feeds are linking to articles about Jean Paul Sartre on what would have been his 100th birthday. The Online Edition of the Independent had one. The Boston Globe had another. Sartre gets a nod from Julian Baggini in the Sunday Herald, promoting David Hume for the BBC poll on the Greatest Philosopher. And Baggini has a Python quote: “David Hume could out-consume Schopenhauer and Hegel”. Which may be true, although Hume was pretty boring, for a Scot.
