Today I was asked what makes a philosopher and it got me thinking on what exactly deserves the title. Philosophy comes from the root philo which means ‘knowledge’ and -osophy meaning ‘the study of’ but is that all it entails? I really believe that anyone who ponders, wonders, questions, compares and embraces in thought are truly philosophers in their own sense of the word. When the surface of the world doesn’t give you the answers you’re looking for and you begin to ponder even deeper into everything, you are philosophizing. So does that make you a philosopher or simply one in thought? Ugh, I have made a circle for myself!
I’m too exhausted and this post requires alert attention. I might rewrite it later.
