Name signs for Philosophers

We have chosen to respect the signs currently used in Greece for the Greek Philosophers ( Aristotle, Plato, Socrates). Other signs were developed by the team in accordance to name sign conventions in ASL, either placing the first letter of the last name to reference either a physical feature or a particular aspect of their philosophical inquiry ( for instance, HOBBES is and H tapping on the top of the non-dominant fist to reference his ideas about the “state of nature”, DESCARTES is a D to the side of the forehead to reference logic/mind/rationality. )  We hope these signs come in handy – less fingerspelling makes everyone happy !
