Philosophising


Martin Heidegger used to say philosophy is philosophising.

In other words, philosophy is not simply talking about ideas but creating ideas. 

I would argue that genuine philosophy, i.e. philosophising, is a creative as well as an intellectual pursuit.

At any rate, there is nothing inherently philosophical about discussing the history of philosophy as they do on the BBC radio show In Our Time unless it involves a creative element.
