Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Philosopher"

The meaning of "Philosopher" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa Many moral philosophers believe that the dichotomy from the Intro course is drawn too sharply.?
A: A dichotomy is a division into two. I'm guessing the dichotomy being referred to here (though it's actually not clear from context) is between deontology and a competing metaethical theory, probably utilitarianism. In introductory ethics courses, these might be taught as two rival approaches that have little in common with each other. The sentence in question is trying to show that many moral philosophers think that these two systems are not so different after all. This point is expanded on and elaborated in the very next sentence, which shows that deontological principles contribute to an aim that utilitarians support, namely providing the greatest happiness to the most people.
Q: O que significa She wrote a radical critique of the philosopher's early essays.

Q: O que significa The ancient Greek philosophers put leisure to use all one had learned to expand an individual's intellectual horizons. In this sentence what's the meaning of "put leisure to use all"??

Q: "For all that French philosophers and…"

Is "that+plural" correct? Why is not used "those"?
A: There is a mistake here. What the mistake *is* depends on the context.

If "for all that" refers to what was just said, then there should be a comma:

For all that, French philosophers and…

Or if "that" refers to philosophers, it should be "those":

For all those French philosophers and…
Q: Which philosopher do you admire most from your country, and what did he/she do?
A: In Pakistan, we admire our poet-philosopher Allama Iqbal who played a big role towards the independence of Muslims from the Hindus. He dreamed of a separate homeland for Muslims (now called Pakistan) and inspired people to move forward by writing beautiful poetry on brotherhood and patriotism!
Q: Which philosopher do you most admire in your country? And what he/she did?
A: "Which philosopher(s) do you admire most from your country, and what did he/she do?" would sound more natural.

Adding an s to philosopher is the difference in single or plural, one philosopher, or multiple philosophers.

"in your country" is fine, and would include foreign philosophers that might happen to be currently residing in your country. More likely "from your country" is what you mean though.

You shouldn't start sentences with "And".

"What did he do", is the proper way to ask what he/she did to gain notoriety.
Q: A Japanese philosopher published his thoughts about space immigration in the future. He said that there are many questions on it even apart from physical difficulties.
For example, he expected that human being's population growth will stop like the current Western countries in the future so there are no worth to expand living area to the space. soa natural?
A: Try to substitute "human beings'" instead to make it plural or more generalized. Also "worth" is singular so use "there is" instead. Good job :)
