I voted for Kant because it used to be that the only thing I knew about him was from Ayn Rand's rants against him. So for many years I hated him by proxy without having a clear idea of what he said. Then one day I saw some less vitriolic analysis of his work, and it all makes sense, so I changed course and decided to love him, by way of doing penance for having unjustly hated him earlier.
Don't ask me to dip below the meta and explain him, though...
Hegel, on the other hand, I have read firsthand, and he's a morose old prick, just like the picture shows.
