  1. Since there are no general criteria, there is no answer to this question. There are private opinions of individuals. Mine – no, it is not. The knowledge created by philosophy has a different status than the knowledge created by science. The methods of philosophy differ from the methods of science.

    But other people may think otherwise, the heavenly tablets with the definition of science were not brought to us.

  2. No. Sciences are born of philosophy. It generates them and starts considering the “narrow” places of the universe.
    Science is like the tentacles of the world to philosophy,it is like the sense organs, each of which is tuned to receive its own data. And, all that is gained by the sciences again converges in philosophy to form a general picture of the world.

  3. No. Science requires a unified methodology, some basic standards for theories and communities. The Germans tried this with the speculative idealism of Hegel, the French with the encyclopedia. All failed.
    Perhaps someday there will be a discipline “philosophy of philosophy” , but so far no one has even tried.
    Another thing is that a part of philosophy in the form of natural science (natural philosophy) is a science. Therefore, in the Anglo-Saxon camp, by the way, mathematicians and physicists have the title of doctor of philosophy.

  4. No it is not.Philosophy appeared in ancient times as the only science that includes the entire spectrum of knowledge about the nature of things.Later it developed as a separate science and reached its apogee after Hegel discovered the three basic laws of dialectics, which were slightly corrected by Marx.At this point, its development ended and the era of empty chatter began.The application of philosophy(dialectics) in practice was carried out by Heinrich Altshuler-an engineer ,not a philosopher.The philosophers didn't even notice it.Recently, foreign mathematicians have created a mathematical model of the theory of catastrophes-in fact, a mathematical expression of the second law of dialectics-the transition from quantity to quality.Again, the philosophers didn't notice anything.

  5. The criteria of science are an opportunity to prove and an opportunity to refute )) For the first one, you need a scientific repeatable experiment or an accurate mathematical simulation of the problem, which will lead to one hundred percent predictive power – the same problem and the same experiment under the same conditions will give one hundred percent the same result.

    Philosophy does not make it possible to test “proof” and does not make it possible to refute “reasoning”, so it is NOT a science, but demagogy.

  6. The main criterion of science is the ability to make accurate forecasts. How fast the ball will fall to the ground from a certain height. What happens if you mix two chemical elements. Psychology, economics, linguistics – all this is creativity, because it can not give a 100% guarantee of future results. And philosophy is the mother of all sciences. It has a special place.
