    Richard Feynman

    He died almost 20 yrs ago. In any case,

    George Soros
    Warren Buffet
    Bill Gates
    Jack Welch

    +1 on Richard Posner

    Obviously, these guys are not in academia, but they should. We all would have something to gain.

    Yea..thats why I put Malcolm Gladwell on the list. Hes not really an academic. Moreso I guess than Bill Gates but he did write a book and he knows a lot so there would be something to gain from him.


    As for the list: Its for a project im doing with some people at Yale. I cant really go into it but maybe in the future (I know thats sounds pretty stupid but yea and thanks though)

    Pft. Dawkins < Stephen Jay Gould from beyond the grave.

    Absolutely (and I've been reading Gould's final work on and off for two years), but GK appeared to want living folk, nonetheless.
