    Don’t you mean “mind share” – I’m not sure what the market is for philosophers. A far more revealing survey would be to ask your average American citizen if they actually recognize any of these philosophers – and if so, what is the philosopher know for. Aside from that communist guy Karl, I suspect the others are going to be mostly unkowns. Now if only Frank Sinatra made the list.
