World Philosophy Day: ideas of philosophers helping Open Lifespan, 2019 edition

Celebrate World Philosophy Day: ideas of philosophers helping Open Lifespan mentioned 6 philosophers (5 alive, 1 dead) whose works in 2018 helped me a lot to formulate questions, problems and answers concerning the philosophy of longevity. Today I add 4 more to the list who influenced me a lot since then and highlight the actual work I was engaging with. Happy to report that all of these 4 philosophers are alive and kicking and also that I made some sort of contact with all of them. After the name, there’s a highlighted philosophical entity (concept, argument …) which provided me with the biggest amount of intellectual fuel. Thank you philosophers!
