Philosophy is conceptual notation, the art of writing concepts down.
In a philosophical investigation, evidence is gathered and arranged perspicuously. The result is presented as a series of remarks that give you a clear view of your concepts. Concepts are how (not what) you think.
Thinking is a difficult business and I am here to help. After observing your difficulty, I compose and deliver a conceptual brief. It cannot spare you the trouble of thinking, but it can bring you into the proximity of a thought, a clearing in your ruminations.
I am a conceptual notary. I merely note your concepts down, and you go on from there.
Philosophy helps you think by getting you to notice your concepts.
