To think, however, can be defined in other ways too... But yes, I surely agree to this definition of philosophy!

Least, bare minimum, non-controversial definition.

Although our Strategy prof discourages agreements - I'd agree with you.

Thanks for the criticism!

Umer i must congratulate you that such a young age you have discovered what is the reality of a 3000 y old on going debate "what is philosophy".

You keep reading, i am sure you will go a long way. But reading is must and read everything. At start one must read everything or way is lost

wow, you defined philo with few words but so aptly!

M. Umer Toor said...

Thank you all for the compliments.

@ Mubi,

"Philo" sounds cool!

@ Sherri,

Why not? If the top intellectual priority isn't hurt....

Lol, Philo is most hip way to refer to Philosophy I've come across so far. Etymologically, Philosophy means love, seek or desire wisdom, it comes from two greek words 'philien' meaning love or desire, and sophia meaning wisdom.
