Yesterday, I posted a list of the forty most-cited contemporary authors in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. A number of people have expressed interest in seeing further down my list, so I am expanding it to 200.
* "Contemporary" means born in 1900 or later.The list of 200 is too long for the main blog page, so I am posting it
* I excluded historical entries, so historians of philosophy will be underreprested.
* Each author is counted only once per entry, and then only if that author receives a bibliographical line on the entry's main page, as either first or solo author.
* The distribution of entries in the SEP should be expected to overrepresent the interests and perspectives of the editors of the SEP, and in particular the SEP has a strongly "analytic"/anglophone perspective.
* This measure emphasizes breadth of influence over depth.
* Citation patterns in the SEP are heavily biased toward recent works, with 2000 being the most cited year. (For a chart see the update to yesterday's entry.)
