Opinion Polls For Philosophers

People within philosophy will probably have already heard of this, but my non-philosopher readers might not.  There has been a series of polls run by Brian Leiter concerning the top philosophers of various eras.  For short results, see the master list of modern philosophers. There have also been polls on the early modern period and the past two hundred years.  The lists is likely to be of merely sociological interest, reflecting what professional philosophers think, but they’re still a nice curiosity.  Note: so far as the term makes sense, those voting on the polls are likely to be ‘analytic’ philosophers.
