What is a philosopher?

The latest New York Times Opinionator column features Simon Critchley's op-ed, "What Is a Philosopher?"

Kuddos to Professor Critchley for both reflecting on the nature of time, and referencing Monty Python!

Interesting. I saw this article when it came out but I had forgotten about it. You might be interested in my film, American Philosopher, which raises questions about about the role of the philosopher in American society (among other issues). Interviews with Richard Rorty, Hilary Putnam, and others. You can get to it by clicking on my name above.
