  1. Definitely-knowledge of philosophy does not lead to philosophy. The German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) has an article “What is philosophy?”. In this article, he shows that we will always be near (not inside philosophy) if we remain in the knowledge (questions) about philosophy. In other words, the tradition in philosophy is transmitted in the” knowledge ” form. But it is useless in itself. Tradition in philosophy, however, is the techniques and methods by which the state of “tense consciousness” is practiced (I emphasize, practiced) (practicing requires skill. It is not a consequence of knowing the tradition. Most often, a tradition is broadcast in a university and there is absolutely no time for practicing philosophy or philosophical reflections). Inside the tense state of consciousness that arises/does not arise in philosophical reflections (conversations), a structure (personal structure) “flashes” (precipitates, crystallizes), allowing you to see what you have not seen before. And your life becomes more meaningful and orderly.

  2. All together, but not only. A philosopher is a person who is engaged in explaining what is happening around them, answering the main ideological questions and challenges of the era.

  3. This is all well and good, but there is still effectiveness in this business, preferably generally recognized and flowing into science. And then into inventions and life's goods.

    A philosopher without results of reasoning.

  4. WORDS very often have more than one meaning…

    Both can be called a PHILOSOPHER here, but with different meanings and meanings…

    It is very USEFUL – both to know philosophy and to be able to reason correctly.

  5. A philosopher is a person who loves wisdom, who is in love with the Divine, with the incomprehensible mysteries of existence, with the Beautiful and its manifestations, with Nature, with people, and with all living things. To be a philosopher means to have a strong attitude, to understand the essence of things, to be able to overcome your fears, to be able to overcome the death within yourself, to be able to get to the very essence of yourself. Because we don't know ourselves. With respect.

  6. I do not know who a philosopher is, but I know perfectly well that a person who knows philosophy is a philosopher, or, whatever you want to call it, a historian specializing in philosophy.

  7. A philosopher is a fool who first studied the fictional Western philosophers of antiquity, which did not exist, but it is implied that the Russians at that time were sitting in bast shoes on trees and chewing nettles.

    In fact, it was the other way around, but philosophers do not know about this.

    They know that then these philosophers studied all sorts of Western jerks who never understood how the world works and what a person is.

  8. The same question as “a scientist is someone who has made a discovery and understands the Scientific method of knowing the world, or this one who holds a position in the Research Institute of Theology and Philosophy on the state budget” ))

    In the literal sense, a philosopher should certainly know philosophy… But here is the problem ) Philosophy is not a science, not a Scientific method, it is the “mother” of sciences, of which only Logic remains, the rest is unscientific and is not used in the knowledge of reality.

    Therefore, there are no philosophers who use the concept of Knowledge in the scientific sense )) Only “reasoners” of various stripes remain.
