Heidegger as the Greatest Philosopher?

The previous post about the BBC segment on Heidegger got me to searching and I found a link to BBC's poll on the Greatest Philosopher. Stephen Mulhall stood in as Heidegger's advocate and the site includes a 1:40 sound bite on his reasons for suggesting Heidegger. Unfortunately, Heidegger didn't even make it into the top ten, first place going to Marx! They also include a section on various UK celebrity votes on this matter, none of whom chose Heidegger. Well, there's one more reason to despair over the current state of the media! ;o)
