I've considered myself as a philosopher masquerading as an investor.  

"A philosopher, then, is a person who loves wisdom and is dedicated to the search for meaning.  The pursuit of wisdom an active, unending process of discovery.  The true philosopher is filled with the passion to understand, a process that never ends." (p. 85, emphasis added)

As the complexity, interconnectedness, and dependencies of life in this world as such have become increasingly apparent and viscerally felt, I have come to the view that my philosopher and investor categories are incorrectly divided.  

There is a false categorization.  They are, in fact, the same.
