No problem, man :) He does have a way of saying things simply and clearly that not a lot of word are necessary.

I've been reading William James lately, but for me it has to be a coin toss between Plato and Robert C. Solomon. Solomon writes about emotions in great detail, and that is my field of interest, but Plato is special to me in that I find his writing style to be the most pleasing out of all of those I have read.

On the flip side, I don't care too much for Spinoza or Charles Peirce, not because of the content of their arguments, but because of the style of their writing.

Alan Watts is probably my favorite, though I really enjoy Slavoj Zizek.

I enjoyed Simone de Beauvoir's work quite a bit, and Machiavelli's The Prince is also very enlightening. (I mainly love it because it was written about Cesare Borgia, but I'm not sure if Machiavelli is technically a philosopher...it's more of an ethics thing, but whatever. :P)

Of course I also love the usual suspects: Socrates, Nietzsche, Sartre. My favorite "comedian philosophers" are Russell Brand and George Carlin. :)

After some more thought, I'd have to change my answer to Matthew Stover.
