I have read quite a lot of philosophers.
I reckon myself a philosopher.
But I don't really know what 'philosophy' means.
It means to be a lover of wisdom. One who is curious about life and knowledge.
But I don't yet dare to speak in generalities.
I know what Foucault says.
What Collingwood, Gray, Schiller, Zizek, or Scarry says.
I know what these philosophers said.
But I don't know what philosophy is.
I understand it as an activity of individual minds.
But i don't understand it as a pure activity.
I bet Collingwood's Essay On Philosophical Method would be helpful with this.
But I don't have that kind of time right now.
