Philosopher, a definition in my opinion: one who questions everything, believes nothing, is generally uncertain. Some claim to study philosophy, they unfortunately just parrot the writings or thoughts of histories greats. I wonder if this is truly the mark of one trying to come to terms with the world around them. The whys, what ifs, hows, and other simple minded questions have been answered countless times through the course of human self realization. The purpose of philosophy is to promote thought, and ultimately self growth. Can we ever grow further than what we've already studied or learned thus far? Here's something to promote thought... take for a moment the oximorons of the English language: the wrong right simply complex the light of darkness the good evil ... etc.
