Philosophy was invented to give unemployed schlubs jobs that involve sitting around at home all day thinking!

(this question is so much better than the one about "does buddy need these banners") No, philosophy was invented before people had art. It was just never named. Cavemen sat around and tried to think of how to explain simple things like why you don't eat bad berries, in a way that is philosophy.

Philosophy is not unique to art, you can have a philosophy on all subject matter. It is to interpret your surroundings and gain a greater understanding of the seemingly superficial for whatever benefits you might seek.

I'm not really sure how this could even be realistically argued. I daresay it hinges on a sketchy idea on the part of the questioner as to what 'philosophy' actually means.
