Notes, topics or text 

"You bring to my notice that I have given various different definitions of 'philosophy'. I do not think any exact definition is possible. Broadly speaking, I should say that, apart from logic and ethics, philosophy consists of speculation on questions of great generality concerning which exact knowledge does not as yet exist, but I do not think that the definition of the word is a matter of much importance." On insincerity and solipsism.
