To have a Philosophical Idea, or some Philosophical Ideas, this doesn't mean I am a Philosopher.
To be considered as a Philosopher this needs more and more Ideas, in many Topics.
Thus, what is the difference between:
- Philosophical Ideas.
- Philosophical Systems.?
We have works of philosophers, like e.g: Wittgenstein, with a lot of "ideas" but with no "system" (same for Nietzsche, Kierkegaard). And we have "systems": Spinoza, Hegel.
So, Could we easily call Kierkegaard a Philosopher?. I think it is so hard to call Kierkegaard a Philosopher. We can find no problems with calling Him a Thinker, a real Thinker, but a Philosopher seems hard.
There is a Philosopher, and there's also a Thinker. To call this or that person a Philosopher, he should have a Philosophical System, or at least a Philosophy. Not just some Ideas. Besides he should act like a Philosopher, eat like a Philosopher, drink like a Philosopher. The style of all his life should be Like that of a Philosopher.
In One of my posts on this site, as far as I remember, I introduced an Idea about:
- Scholar of Philosophy.
- Academic Philosopher.
There are a delicate distinction between three of them. Especially between: Philosopher and Academic Philosopher. Both of them are real Philosophers, from the moment of their birth. But the Academic studied Philosophy from all perspectives, He studied Logic, Linguistics, Psychology, Mathematics, Arts...etc.
Scholar of Philosophy we may Consider Him as "Thinker."
I need to study much more about Kierkegaard, He may be a real Philosopher, but his age, and short life didn't allow him to reach the level of Academic Philosopher, having a Philosophical System.
I hope my words are clear.
Thus, what is the difference between Philosophical Ideas, Philosophies and Philosophical Systems?
