I thought about "the medium is the message", and kind of transposed the similar thought-pattern to philosophy.
Finding answers often seems to be at the very core of the subject: people fight with arguments, and reason in order to convince their opponent/conversational companion of their theories. While it would be wrong to assume that they have found "THE answer", each idea is a piece of the global puzzle, and hopes to answer at least partly certain essential questions.
However, it also appears evident that philosophy is an "activity": the activity of reason, the exercise of thought. Therefore, limiting philosophy to finding answer would reduce it greatly, and would not form an accurate account of the researchers, the thinkers, and the scholars, who, despite the fact that they have not found the ultimate "truth" if there is any, have contributed to an additional depth of thinking. This is the "thrive of the process", the intellectual activity of philosophy.
So allow me to ask the following question if I may: Is philosophy the quest of the answer, or the thrive of the process? Is it both?
