I know Picard is quite a humanities fan and speaks to Wesley about philosophy during their trip to a starbase when to get his heart operation conducted. That got me to thinking - does Picard ever say who his favorite philosopher actually is and, if so, who would that person be?


No, Picard never says who his favourite philosopher is, and anyone with an interest in philosophy would never pick a "favourite" anyway. Picard strikes me as a man interested in the search for 'truth;' no-one interested in truth would limit themselves in such a way.
