For no reason in particular, I thought it would be nice to have a list of fictional works in which one of the main characters is an academic philosopher. The rules are somewhat arbitrary. I am prepared to be flexible as to what counts as fiction, a main character, or a philosopher. However, I don’t want folks that just happen to be thinkers. What I really want is characters who are involved in philosophical academic activity—publishing, lecturing, having an office in a university, etc.

Check the list and email Dr. Andow with suggested additions (his email address is at the top of the list); feel free to mention them here, too.
