' Free from prejudices '...
Most people look for labels, affix them or accept them, and then are forced to stand up for all the ideas bearing the label they identify themselves with.
They limit their search for Truth as soon as they join a group.
They must then accept untruths along with truths.
Philosophy, as we use the term, cannot be limited to any single set teaching, for it is universal.
It approaches the truth universally, free from prejudices, exclusions, and labels.
