Philosophy – in very field of inquiry – is what you have to do until you figure out what questions you should have been asking in the first place. Some people hate it when that happens. They would rather take their questions off the rack, all nicely tailored and pressed and cleaned and ready to answer. Those who feel that way can do physics or mathematics or history or biology […] we philosophers have a taste for working on the questions that need to be straightened before they can be answered.
