Studying MRes in metaphilosophy (2016), and also helped by George Shiber (phone), Alex Rosenberg (email) and Julian Baggini (face-to-face consultation); I owe all three a huge debt of gratitude.
I think most would agree that philosophy is not a scientific pursuit. When I say scientific, I refer to the adjective form of the Orwellian noun ‘science.’ (What is science?) Philosophy then, is a method of answering, or attempting to answer, those questions which science cannot.
The purpose of this website is the propagation of good philosophy and science. And also a reduction of their counterpart (by way of criticism). An ancillary benefit, one might say, is the ability to represent my own views, problems, thoughts.
