who is greatest philosopher of 20th century?

I would like to nominate Jean-Paul Sarte as the heterosexual opponent. To be sure, Sarte was squat and wall-eyed and not very impressive as a physical specimen, but he was a fan of boxing and once even dealt Camus a black eye; also his addiction to corydrane and other stimulants might give him an edge. I'm not sure Wittgenstein would be up for it though, but given his fondness for cripples he might want to date the loser.

I say Dietrich Von Hildebrand.

Hardly. Sartre was a notorious womanizer. Although one critic famously remarked that his creative talent was essentially feminine and that he "needed to be inseminated and stimulated by other people"; and then there was that 600 page work on Jean Genet.

The chief problem with Heidegger, as I see it, is that he writes like this.

As a person who waited for Godot far too long in high school, I'd say this is a major plus.

For the fisticuffs - I'm nominating Merleau-Ponty.    He was scrappy, and he'd turn on you...ask Sartre.

This isn't even that bad.  You can still glean meaning from it.  More so than many modern theologians and philosophers.  Try reading Derrida...

"Needless to say, one more time, deconstruction, if there is such a thing, takes place as the experience of the impossible."
