Is Jack Kerouac a philosopher?

If so what brand? branch? breed?

Describe Jack Kerouac for me please.
When did you meet him?
What has been your history with him?

What does he mean to you?
How do you understand him?

Or is it Jack Kerouac is a philosophy?

The term, "philosopher" as used by many people is honorific and of course some people may merit having that term applied to them. Very often, of course, that term, "philosopher" is applied very loosely to people. Its application to Kerouac is one of its looser uses.

Which would you call your self a loose philosopher or a tight one?
Would you call your self a philosopher at all?
What ingredients do you think makes a loose philosopher and what a tight one?
And agreed although I love his work I think Kerouac is more a philosophy than a philosopher.
What was for you his stand out work?
