I was first introduced to this term while reading a wonderful book called Think A compelling introduction to philosophy: "The word 'philosophy' carries unfortunate connotations: impractical, unworldly, weird.

I would prefer to introduce myself as doing Conceptual Engineering. For just as the engineer studies the structure of material things, so the philosopher studies the structure of thought..."
