Merge question concerning the Philosopher article[edit]

Should the article Philosopher, which is currently "top importance" but "start class" be merged into this article? Please have a look here: SPECIFICO talk 18:18, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

No: the Philosopher article is of little merit.
That's the point. The Philosopher article needs vast improvement or else it should be merged or redirect. SPECIFICO talk 22:28, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
I do not see the point in having an article "Philosopher" as well as an article "Philosophy" any more than "Chemist" and "Chemistry" (and I am surprised to note that there are such as well as Biologist/Biology and Musician/Music.!) On the grounds that Philosopher a) superfluous and b) devoid of useful content I would support emptying the article and redirecting to this article, — Philogos (talk) 23:53, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Why not DELETE the article Philosopher? --— Philogos (talk) 21:26, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes, merge and delete.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 21:36, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Just DELETE (but do not merge) Philosopher replacing it with a redirection to Philosophy. The article Philosopher, has no content worth incorporting into Philosophy. --— Philogos (talk) 21:43, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 5 December 2014[edit]

Lpcardoso (talk) 17:49, 5 December 2014 (UTC) In the second sentence of the first paragraph maybe it will help to add examples of other ways of addressing the problems that philosophy tackles. Ie: the sentence would read: "Philosophy is distinguished from other ways (ex: mythology, religion, scientific research) of addressing such problems by..."

My suggestion comes after reading the article in another language (Portuguese) link. tks.

disambiguation link[edit]

word 4 of paragraph 1 of article header, study, links to disambiguation page. I suggest Education as the destination for this link as it pertains to a "field of study" or "branch of education"

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: You would need consensus before adding such a link, which you are unlikely to get; but as the site is deemed suspicious/risky by McAfee, it won't be added in any case. - Arjayay (talk) 19:00, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
