I view myself as a philosopher, but notice that I don't capitalize. Philosophers would be guys like Plato, Kant, Wittgenstein, etc. My belief is that being a philosopher entails that you can view the world in many different ways and that you can never become static in your beliefs. You are always in a state of becoming or of realizing. I have this suspicion that all those Philosophers who have come up with theories to describe how things are or how we know things don't believe 100% of the time their own stuff.
