What is Philosophy?

Here are four ways to look at the question. 

1) Philosophy is the "Love of Wisdom."  More appropriately, it is an enthusiasm for discussing interesting things.

2. Philosophy is thinking (talking) about thinking.

3. Philosophy is the analysis of philosophical and scientific language and concepts.

4. Philosophy is gossiping about school teachers and the things they do and say.

I'll dilate upon these definitions in future Highbrow posts.

As Plato and Aristotle might agree: whatever it is, it is engaging.
