  1. The presentation of an academic degree does not mean anything. A degree can be obtained for studying a specific problem in a specific problem field, but this does not mean that you know the subject in which you are defending your dissertation very well.

    In general, the question itself is rather strange. Why do you need to prove, for example, that you like to read fiction and read a lot? You do it for yourself, not for some record or praise. It's the same with philosophy, why do you need to prove something to someone?

  2. If you interpret philosophy as the love of wisdom, then flowers and oaths. How else do lovers prove their love? He can, of course, still write poems, sing serenades, get on his knees, or maybe jump off the roof or drink poison. Lovers can be very creative in ways to prove their love. The demonstration of the object of one's love (i.e., one's “Sofia”) is not a proof of love, but a proof of one's ambition.

    And an academic degree (correctly – a diploma of awarding an academic degree) is presented not by a philosopher, but by a specialist in philosophy. But just as a marriage certificate is not proof of the love of the spouses, a diploma of a degree in philosophy is not proof of the love of a settled person for wisdom.

    If we interpret philosophy as the author of this term Pythagoras did (i.e., as a concern for the study of the nature of things and the knowledge of truth), then we must present the results of the study of the nature of things and the known truths.

  3. Just as you can prove that you are a human being, that you have consciousness. 🙂 Especially with the proof that you have consciousness, you will have to plunge into philosophy.

    And just like how you can prove that you are not an animal.:)

    Welcome to the World of Philosophy.

  4. A philosopher is a limited profession. Why. A person can look at the world in an expanded way, from different angles. Supplement your scientific views with practical examples from the everyday life of an ordinary person. When you will be understood, ordinary people, and thank you for vital advice. And being a limited scientist in a small company, within the strict limits of the profession , is not cool.

  5. He must have his own philosophy, be ready, so to speak, to present it (there is such a meme – “on the Hamburg bill”). It doesn't matter if someone likes it or not, it should be their own philosophy.

    Philosophy is fundamentally different from science in this sense, among other things. A scientist always stands “on the shoulders” of his predecessors – in his scientific activity, he is guided, to use a clever word, by a “paradigm” (or refutes the paradigm if he is Lavoisier or Einstein, but this still means “standing on the shoulders of his predecessors”). The philosopher, on the other hand, always starts “from the very beginning.” Not because that's what they taught him at the university, but because that's what philosophy is all about.

    There are as many philosophies as there are philosophers. A piece item.

    The great Nietzsche, however, imposed even more stringent criteria for the right to be called a ” philosopher “(divided into “philosophers” and “workers in philosophy”), but this will be superfluous here.

    Small UPDATE (for clarification): Own philosophy arises when a person manages, suddenly, to see and formulate a problem-where others did not see it, and did not even guess that such a (problem) exists. He sees-formulates-others are surprised: “Oh! Look at this, it's true!” (Bergson claimed that this is already enough to, as it seems, calmly face old age.) And this is a very non-trivial task, mind you. Because the philosopher, unlike the scientist, does not use all sorts of small-scale telescopes for this, there is nothing at his disposal that all other people would not have – eyes, ears, nose… And he doesn't even have a tail, either.
