What is philosophy?
I don't know. It seems to me that if we try to define it, it becomes either too broad or too narrow to be useful.
What exactly does the love of knowledge and the search for knowledge actually mean?
What is the relation between knowledge and truth?
In another thread I said philosophy was rhetorical criticism -- perhaps a bit unsatisfying for most people here but a valid one if one accepts Nietsche's (yes, I'm jumping on the bandwagon) answer to the question, "What is truth?":
"A moving army of metaphors, metonymies and anthropomorphisms, in short a summa of human relationships that are being poetically and rhetorically sublimated, transposed and beautified until, after long and repeated use, a people considers them as solid, canonical, and unavoidable. Truths are illusions whose illusionary nature has been forgotten . . ."
How about philosophy as the critique of common sense?
