Alain de Botton

Alain de Botton is not one of the worlds great philosophers, however, he is one of the very best at explaining philosophy and expressing its importance in our everyday lives.

It was seeing an episode of one of his first tv series - The Consolations of Philosophy (which itself is based on a book) that quite literally changed my life. He made me think - I dont mean idly day dream, I mean really really think. This makes him important to me.
