The definition of Axiomism

Here’s a definition of “axiomism” (a term that I have coined): Axiomism is the conviction that the philosophical opinions that my favorite philosopher holds can never be wrong, because my favorite philosopher's opinions are axioms, which do not need to be established through scientific evidence, nor is there any need to defend them through philosophical arguments. These opinions must be accepted as self-evident facts. In the twentieth century, several philosophical movements contracted the intellectual disease of axiomism.
