I would like to promote the idea there is indeed Philosophy-proper.

As I mentioned there can be many forms and expression of 'Philosophy' but there is one essence to it.

If we are to note, we often see 'philosophy' expressed as

Philosophy of 'X' or anything.

For any thing one can think of, we can add the prefix 'philosophy' to it, even, 'Philosophy of Evil'.

Philosophy-proper is the meta- and overriding element to any thing but always in the positive context towards the optimal well-being of humanity.

Therefore whenever we discuss anything whether it is positive or negative, we should raise the question, what is the philosophy-in-essence of it and thus direct towards the ultimate positive of whatever is deliberated on. This is even applicable to philosophy itself, i.e. the Philosophy of philosophy.

For example, even though Science is one of the most contributive and positive element to humanity, there is still a Science of Philosophy whether it is implicit or explicit.
