  1. It works the other way around: a philosophical text sets you apart. How this happens, no one knows. But if he has distinguished you, there is no turning back. So be careful with your texts.

  2. From what exactly? From non-text? From a non-philosophical text? From meaningless text?

    The last two options are interesting, especially since the answer to them is about the same. What is text? This is a statement or a set of statements made in some language, in the broad sense of the word “language”, in the language of physics, for example. To understand the text in English, you need to know English, to understand the text in Russian, you need to know Russian. Without knowing the language, how can you tell a meaningful text from a meaningless one? Philosophy, like physics, mathematics, history – any discipline – has its own language, its own conceptual apparatus, its own history of polemics, its own conflicts, problems, and questions. To understand a philosophical text, that is, to recognize that this text is not meaningless and that it is philosophical, you need to know all this context (or at least the part of it that relates to the text). And to know it, you need to be immersed in the question, study it for some time – and then you will understand whether it is a philosophical text or not, having meaning, or meaningless.

  3. Not everyone can distinguish a philosophical text from informational or descriptive and historical or other texts. Most often, people begin to distinguish philosophical tests in adulthood and, then, not all, but a very small percentage of people living on this earth. Philosophy is the love of wisdom and its texts necessarily carry the seed of wisdom. For example: “Everything is bought and sold, And life openly laughs at us, We are indignant, we are indignant, But we are sold and bought.” With respect.
