Aristotle. His studies in logic impress me a lot. He created the concept of definition and how to compose a logically correct proposition (syllogism).

None of the ancient Greek philosophers. Philosophy has moved way past them IMO. Eliezer Yudkowsky and Nick Bostrom are my two favorites.

I think the greeks should get more credit  because of the originality of their ideas. Its easier to modify or expand a pre existing idea than to create an entirely new one.

I mean, Plato and Aristotle’s teachings are considered the foundation of western culture.

Plato. Revolutionary ideas that, while not particularly practical, were extremely advanced for their time.

Not that I agree that the Greek philosophers are completely irrelevant today.

I do not really have any specific favorites. Favoring any specific philosopher is honestly kinda counter-productive as far as understanding philosophy itself goes.
