There are many ways of facing challenges and solving problems. Moreover, there are different challenges and problems, some of which seem gigantic while others come and go on a daily basis. To get things done, of course, is most important.
There are more important things than to quarrel over the question of what philosophy is. I have this idea, for example, that being experienced in the field of philosophy can help to get things done beyond philosophy itself.
I like this idea: it is the ground on which I pursue the goal of bringing in my experience and perspective wherever others believe that I might contribute to solve problems, organize things, and create new spaces for dialogue and practices.
