Philosophy is basically hard to define but you can recognise it when you see it.

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom".

The disciplines presented in university curriculums of science and the liberal arts, except medicine, law, and theology. 6.
