Should philosophy be considered an art or a science? I was recently listening to an Alan Watts lecture were he defined science simply as "accurate description" which requires rigorous precision and calculable elimination of variables, which is not possible in philosophy the way it is in Chemistry and Mathematics, using contamination-proof rooms and limited variables. Is the mind too variable for all things to be considered, or are we fundamentally driven by basic needs and desires which can be simply calculated?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
