The role and purpose of philosophy is to try to understand someting. So philosophy form conclusion and opinion to understand someting. Phylosophy at first was suppose to identify someone who was a "lover of wisdom" (Philos=lover and sophia=wisdom). I think I would philosopher have to ask all kinds of different question, to come up with new ideas, and understand a phenomena. Phylosophy is everthing it can study anything is this world: scientific, abstract thing's, and it can be found anywhere.
