Non-academic popular philosopher--Eric Hoffer
Eric Hoffer wrote...
"It is thus with most of us; we are what other people say we are. We know ourselves chiefly by hearsay."
Philosophical aphorism from a longshoreman, philosopher...over 40 years ago and probably just as popular as Marshall McLuhan or Eric Fromm. He still garners a cadre of followers today.
