Daniel Dennett

Holy crap I would agree, and francis bacon.
Hitler- If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Stalin- Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

Machiavelli- It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.

Ivan the Terrible- "I will not see the destruction of the Christian converts who are loyal to me, and to my last breath I will fight for the Orthodox faith

From my memory, he argues the mind doesn't exist and since our mind sometimes tricks us, we can't use the intuition of the cogito. His argument is really centered around showing that most of our intuitions are false and jumping to materalism with that.

It's an okay argument against solipsism because our mind can't be wrong if there's nothing else to establish "truth" with respect to it, but I don't see how he gets to materialism from there. A lot of people conflate idealism with solipsism.

Kant.

What a catastrophic spider.

Dennett, Bacon, Hume, Nietzsche, and Sartre are all top-tier philosophers.

If by "occasionally" you mean "all the time", apparently.

I was GOING to send you one of Ayn Rand's unpublished diaries for Christmas, but I think instead I'll give you a Kant doll that repeats passages from The Critique of Pure Reason whenever you squeeze it.
