Who do you consider a remarkable philosopher/psychologist/spiritual leader?
What work/s such as books have they produced that have a profound yet practical value to humanity, for example, on the level of everyday living? Have his/her work/s gained popular acceptance? If so of if not, why do you think so?
Mirza Tahir Ahmad: I will make a hub about him as it is hard to answer this question in short. If you are interested to learn more about him please let me know....
Walt Kelly was a brilliant philosopher, filling up cartoon strips for years. His character, Pogo, said, "We have met the enemy and he is us." Yepper!
David Jeremiah. He has survived in the ministry not by being religious but by being genuine. Amazing speaker.
I also like James MacDonald. He is a no nonsense kind of guy and I really like that.
I have a quote by Socrates (Plato) up on our fridge:
"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place
of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their
households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They
contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties
at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."
I actually love Socrates for his belief in the importance of asking questions of yourself and others to find the best answers, and use his methods (as he admits, methods he was taught by others!) and it is just funny to see him (or Plato or whoever was taking dictation for him) be surprised by these darn kids of today.
I agree, I also like Socrates and Plato. "Democracy... is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder; and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike." Plato| http://sportsbetter.hubpages.com/hub/10 … ato-Quotes
God. His word is the best book ever created. This book is accepted internationally, but also cursed by many. This book is filled with ways to live and to be prosperous. It also contains instructions on how to make it in this cold and cruel world. This book has been around for a long time and there is a reason why.
The person I most respect today can take versus out of the Bible and explain them to you in a way that you know God has given him such Knowledge. That would be Dr. Charles Stanley. He is Definitely chosen.
For me, one of the most remarkable philosophical spiritual leaders is the Buddha. Yes, his Dhammapada has gained popular acceptance and is very useful for living a peaceful life. I believe there are many Buddhists who find his life to be an example of "the middle way." This means not living in the extreme but rather choosing consciously what brings peace, joy and love to one's spirit without being radical towards any particular theme.
