What is philosophy?

This is gonna be a short one, I have an essay to work on! 

While searching for a definition of philosophy, I found an interesting (anonymous) answer in the comments on a blog post here: http://insocrateswake.blogspot.ca/2011/05/defining-philosophy.html

In other disciplines, you learn more and more about less and less, until you know everything about nothing. In philosophy, on the other hand, you get to know less and less about more and more, until you know nothing about everything.

I really liked that. And that’s all for tonight.
