From football I turn to cricket, offering for your consideration this XI of philosopher-cricketers:
1. Edmund (Jim) Burke, of New South Wales, Australia and revolutionary France.
2. Charles (Mark) Taylor of New South Wales, Australia and the Self (captain).
3. Crispin (John) Wright, of Northern Districts and - I mean, really - New Zealand.
4. Thomas (Sir Jack) Hobbes, of Surrey, England and Leviathan; the scorer, aptly, of 197 first-class hundreds, more than any other man or even creature to date.
5. Stuart (John) Hampshire, of Yorkshire and England in both thought and action.
6. Karl (Eric) Marx, of Transvaal, South Africa and the XI (sic) Theses on Feuerbach; this latter individual an obscure leg-spinner from what used to, and for all I know may still, be Potchefstroom, and who merely interpreted Christianity, believing that the main point was to alter the direction of the ball once it had pitched (q.v. Bernard Bosanquet below).
7. Donald (Alan 'Davo') Davidson, of New South Wales - a most philosophical State, as you will already have noted - Australia and just about everything in contemporary metaphysics.
8. Bernard (Bernard) Bosanquet, of Middlesex, English Idealism and the Hegelian googly: in essence an off-break, but with the appearance of a leg-break.
9. Bertrand (Jack) Russell, of Gloucestershire, England and the theory of descriptions - to say nothing of his sketches (wicket-keeper).
10. John (Tony) Locke, of Surrey, England and sufficient human understanding to be able to grasp why he could only take one wicket while Laker was taking the other 19.
11. Walter (Kenny) Benjamin, of the Leeward Islands, West Indies and Theses on the Philosophy of History - being pessimistic reflections concerning the sad decline of the West Indian game in recent times.
Twelfth Man. Adam Smith (considered by some a marginal selection for a Philosopher's XI, but so formidable was he as a thinker that he played for - indeed captaining - England as Mike, bowled leg-spin for South Africa as Ian, and represented the West Indies as Collie, in just three of his many cricketing manifestations).
