There's philosophy and philosophy. I am (or was) a philosopher,* but in a different philosophical tradition, and I find that style of writing pretty heavy going. Fairly heavy going, and often fairly -- and apologies here to the original poster, because I understand that it's worthwhile for you -- vacuous, or literal nonsense.

* I don't mean that in a figurative sense. I mean I was paid to teach philosophy, have published (albeit not much) as philosopher, etc.
