Crossword Genius

Urge seizing philosopher, left asking for nothing (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

prayerless

Here is my best explanation:

'asking for nothing' is the definition.

'urge seizing philosopher left' is the subsidiary indication.

'urge' becomes 'press' ('press' can be a synonym of 'urge'**).

'seizing' indicates putting letters inside.

'philosopher' becomes 'ayer' (AJ Ayer).

'left' becomes 'l' (common abbreviation).

'ayer'+'l'='ayerl'

'press' enclosing 'ayerl' is 'prayerless'.
