If you had 6 months to train any 6 philosophers into the ultimate military team, on a level with the A-Team or the top henchman in a Bond movie or the SAS in a Garth Ennis comic, who would you choose and why?

You can pick any philosopher living or dead and pluck them from the prime of their life to be inducted into your boot camp. You have unlimited resources to train them but only 6 months. Who? Who?
Can I pick Socrates 6 times?
No you have to choose 6 different people.

here's your metal gear cast

socrates @ field leader
rawls @ communications
wittgenstein @ combat engineering
jl austin @ superspy
nietzsche @ heavy weapons
sunzi @ the guy with a plan

oh look it's the usual suspects
Is this book translated into English. I like philosophy and cute girls.
Kant - team leader
Wittgenstein - interrogation
Deleuze - tactical operations
Christopher Langan - muscle
Godel - computations/engineering
Leibniz - bait
>nietzsche @ heavy weapons
Also curious. Translation when?
An A-team has 12 members and is useless without a B-team.
>Not sticking to the ultimate team dynamic:
-useless chick
Plato, Socrates, Epictetus, Aristotle, Plotinus and Marcus Aurelius.
They were all prolly in good physical shape.
I choose the pragmatists and one wild card absurdist
Socrates as team leader? Are you fucking nuts? Nothing would get accomplished. He would lay down endless questions and hypotheticals, he would show up late and get lost in thought.

you mean Heidegger.

>And here’s the chapter breakdown:

>Chapter 1, Descartes: proving the existence of God
is that all
>Chapter 2, Spinoza: man is the greatest for man
>Chapter 3, Berkeley and Hume: to exist is to be aware
but one is an immaterialist
>Chapter 4, Kant: the starry heaven above me and morality within me
well they had to choose a topic
>Chapter 5, Hegel: the world is an infinite progression towards wisdom
wisdom wouldn't be his first choice of words
>Chapter 6, Nietzsche: God is dead, but nothing has changed
you sure about that
>Chapter 7, Heidegger: without a world, we do not exist, without us, the world does not exist, we are not alone”.
ex nihilo omnia, best girl :3

>As the blog Feminist Philosophers noted, it could be potentially productive for young readers to see a traditionally “male” activity being performed by girly girls.

Okay now do this but pick authors for a super sentai team

Red: William James
Blue: Kant
Green: Žižek
Yellow: Anscombe
Pink: Hypatia
Ivory: Heidegger
anon... lay off the seals
>Wittgenstein - interrogation
>he invents a language game where the only permissible words are enemy classified information
Leader: Sun Tzu
Second in command: Socrates
Dualies: Miyamoto Musashi
The Wildcard: Max Stirner
The Nut Job: Julius Evola
Guy who is obviously the main character: Friedrich Nietzsche
Evola: raider captain
Plato: second in command
Nietzsche: cavalry captain
Camus: suicide missions
Socrates: commander
Diogenes: dives down Charlie tunnels and comes back with severed ears
>Camus: suicide missions

Stirner is certain to betray the team.
nietzsche, guitarri, mao, lenin, zizek and badiou
Epictetus was crippled (but manly) and I can't imagine that Plotinus would have been in good shape anon...
I don't think he would to be honest.

That all depends on why the team was assembled in the first place.

If it's in his interest to play ball then there should be no problem.
What the fuck is Zizek gonna do? Get drunk and tell Mongol jokes? Join the enemy as an act of revolutionary revolutionary counter-protest?

you people are idiots

zizek is one of the most radical philosophers since marx

But where is the best girl?
What is radical about him?
Not all philosophers would necessarily be able to be transformed into great military squad members. I for one would rather go with a more solid pick.
His allergies *sniff sniff sniff*, and so on.
Wittgenstein nearly pulled a child's ear off - he's not shy to torture
Is a ghost and one of the seven mysteries of the school.
Best plan is to favor ancient Greek philosophers. Anybody picking Nietzsche is just flat wrong. Wittgenstein I would allow for being a good pick because he actually saw war.

Squad Leader - Heidegger
Alpha Leader - Socrates
-Rifleman - Cleanthes
-Grenadier - Heraclitus
-Automatic Rifleman - Aristotle
Bravo Solo Team (Mercenary Sniper) - Nietzsche
this is some reddit-tier autism thread
>this is some reddit-tier autism thread
said the autistic redditor
What about 6 Socrates but all of them are diverse in color.

If you deny this, you're racist OP
What is this LN
Team Leader: Hegel
Second in Command: Evola
Main Offensive Member: Ernst Junger
Main Defensive Member: Sun Tzu
Saboteur/Wild Card: Max Stirner
Scout/Stealth: Wittgenstein

Hegel's wisdom and natural teacher/authority skills would give him the ability to guide the others, Evola would be an incredibly loyal and strong second in command given his lifestyle and experiences, Junger was a veteran and warrior who knew combat and could easily take on any combat operation, Sun Tzu was a brilliant commander so leaving defense to him seems natural, Max Stirner plays a part because of his nature and general attitude towards spooks giving him the natural role of saboteur ruining the team's oppositions plans and strategies, and Wittgenstein being as autistic he is and his experience would make him an excellent spy and scout.
>Leibniz - bait
Dead on
Good team.
Why not put Wittgenstein on comms?
this but Marcus Aurelius instead of Hegel and priest Kierkegaard to absolve the dying of sins.
this. Rawls in battle? Noooo.
