A Conversation for How to Be a Philosopher

a point about the origin of philosophy

just to be technical, but philosophy derives from (please forgive me if I spell this slightly wrong, I don't have my classic Greek dictionary on hand) Philos, meaning love (as you said above) and Sophia - which accually means wisdome (not knowledge).

The majority of philosopher's I know would be quite miffed to sophia translated as knowledge.

Sounds good.

I forgot to say that other than one tiny error, it's a great entry.

The entry has now been updated by Danny B, curator and all round superstar, to correct my error (amongst other changes). Thanks for pointing it out!
