I am aware that this line of thought sounds rather peculiar when it is about to define philosophy or philosophical practice. Nevertheless, let’s go along with it for a moment:
If love makes us feel attracted, committed, passionate etc. then do we, as practitioners, when doing philosophy, feel attracted, passionate, committed to wisdom?
We know what the expression “to make love” means. In its essence it is about uniting and connecting. Let’s reframe this term into the context of philosophical practice:
What are we actually doing, when “making love of wisdom” so to say,when practicing philo-sophia? With what or whom are we uniting and connecting?
