The western and male part shouldn't bother anyone. I'm kind of surprised to see that comment several times in these comments. Most philosophy in English, especially before 1960, is written by western males.

Yet no one points out that these all of these sources are continental (as opposed to analytic) philosophers. I'd think that a "curated" list that omits Russell, Carnap, and Quine—the most preeminent philosophers of the 20th century—would raise a bigger fuss among the HN crowd.
