The philosopher is a peculiar noble - he requires no special rooms or furniture, makes no mandates (but still makes demands), and does not serve any known purpose. There is evidence that the philosopher is intended to be the head of a particular guild, but exactly what this guild governs is anybody's guess.

While he has no formal requirements, he will, like any other dwarf, get unhappy thoughts from sleeping on the floor or without a 'proper' room; since he will not rent or claim a room himself, it is advisable to assign at least some form of bedroom to him.
