I think Plato and Wittgenstein were philosophers. I'm not convinced anyone else was or is.
Too many people treat excellence of expertise like an umbrella under which they confusedly believe to stand under, because their theory of mind fails where it counts: imagination. So they imagine themselves philosophers, much in the same way they fancy themselves therapists when they attend therapy for their own betterment, because they think that they understand what they can read and vice versa.
