Philosophy & Plagiarism

It is usually the philosophers who have never had an original idea in their lifetime who like to shout from rooftops that their philosophy is completely original and is better than every other past or present philosophy. They plagiarize from hundred different resources, never give credit to any past philosopher, and then proclaim that they have created an original system of philosophy. In any case, the idea of original philosophy is nonsensical. Philosophy does not proceed by virtue of original ideas, but by the virtue of "original arguments." If your arguments are not good, and you are unable to defend your philosophical position, then your philosophy is useless.
