i like your poll suggestion a lot.

FYC,
Director Wes Craven
Craven earned an undergraduate degree in English and psychology from Wheaton College in Illinois and a master's degree in philosophy and writing from Johns Hopkins University.

Director Wes Anderson
Wes Anderson graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in philosophy.

Director Greta Gerwig
She showed an early interest in dance, and had intended to complete a degree in musical theatre in New York, but ended up graduating from Barnard College with a degree in English and philosophy.

Director Wim Wenders
He then studied medicine (1963–64) and philosophy (1964–65) in Freiburg and Düsseldorf.

Director Pawel Pawlikowski
He studied literature and philosophy at Oxford University.

Director Lenny Abrahamson
He studied physics and philosophy at Trinity College Dublin, where he was elected a scholar in Mental and Moral Science (philosophy) in 1988, having first completed an MA in Theoretical Physics in 1987.

i would add the modifier "academic" to your question to be extra clear.
Which of these directors with academic studies in philosophy is your favorite?
Otherwise, anyone can make the claim that has been philosophical or read a couple of related books. I don't even think graduating should be required, but being in a formal program should.

You can add to your list by searching IMDb biographies Biography Matching "philosophy" (Sorted by Popularity Ascending) and cross checking directors Early Life section on Wikepedia (ie https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawe%C5%82_Pawlikowski#Early_life)

Greta Gerwig is a she, not a he in your answer option. Thanks, I am not so hung up on the formal training aspect, just that the answer is provable and their is a measure for inclusion.
