Logically, the word philosopher, implies the idea of 'not a philosopher', so not all are thus.
For I, the philosopher, is one who is always ready to suspend belief (Descartes) and see both sides of the argument.:detective:
A non-philosopher cannot do this: such a person would be dogmatically sticking to his point of view with ever more elaborate illogical explanations. Such a person could be termed a philosophismer.:poke-eye:
The philosopher realises that there is only one correct model, but is always ready to see the other side, just to be sure. The philosopher doubts everything, in order to decide what is true, beyond reasonable doubt. She is not bothered overly with paradox as a stepping stone to the one truth.:listening:
We all have the potential to be philosophers, but some just choose not to do so. They have not abstracted their mind distinctly from the senses. His imagination is so preoccupied with the senses, that the concept of paradox, just looks like a contradiction. Word-truths are for the philosophismer, pure ideas for the philosopher.
A philosopher realizes that the REAL philosophy actually takes place in the lounge.:shifty:
