is this considered philosophy/izing?

If you or I make a conclusion about the way things are which are not obvious.. as in it may take some time to reason thorugh your memory to come up with certain conclusions.. example: like if you conclude that people act like X becasue of y.. and i believe my brain is similar so i can give more reasons from analysing me personally.. like that kind of thing is it philosphizing? or simply obserbing/reasoning? or like some considered very abstact thoguhts.. if its absdtract it sohiuld be philosphy?

All things derive from philosophy. I challenge anyone to state an object, or otherwise, that can not in some way be linked to philosophy.

That's because objects and such are useful tools in helping people derive and understand philosophy.

Everything is philosophy:
- philosophy of metaphysics
- philosophy of epistemology
- philosophy of ethics
- philosophy of logic
- philosophy of mind
- philosophy of math
- philosophy of religion
- philosophy of language
- philosophy of science
- philosophy of politics/law
- philosophy of anthropology/sociology
- philosophy of psychology
- philosophy of arts
- pseudophilosophy

that list doesn't exactly leave anything behind.

that only counts as philosophizing if you thought sincerely about it first.

since the defitition is like love of wisdom/truth or something like that (may vary)... but according to that common defition..

by that defnition theoretically I can make and be certain of a claim and NOT question it.. and NOT give reason for it and/but I still am a lover of truth and wisdom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>> isnt this feel weird... casue i seem to associate pondering and thinking of reasons to be necceary for philosophy.. but by defintion of 'lover of truth' it can be me being certain of a claim that i dont not question/ponder or give any resaon for...

thank you for backing me up,but i have seen very sincere people that are closed minded. etherealmeekle for example. he admits that he is closed minded, yet he is still very sincere in his beleife of the hi faith. if by sincere you mean searching for the truth, i would agree. but philosophy is not searching for the truth, its studing thought. i think at least.

ok well going by only the "lover of wisdom/truth" definition you dont have to be sincere or open minded.. and you canfor sure be sincere (believeing in what you say) and not open minded, i no one is 'close minded' absolutely.. but by that main defition of philosphy you dont have to question or ponder reason about your claim of truth.. although thats what i think we associate with it and i tihnk eeryone does that to a degree.. well maybe not..
