Since anyone can update wikipedia.org, why don't you. However, if you are using the term philosophical doctrine to mean philosophy in general, then yes, it all qualifies as a pursuit for wisdom and knowledge.


Yes, I meant the latter.

See, I "pick" on Scepcop, too: http://www.debunkingskeptics.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=423&p=4034#p4034 :D

I wanted to read to see how excellent her works are, but she seems not a famous author, I couldn't find even one of her books.

I'm not familiar with the Nobel Prize for Litarature as most of the works that win that award are not to my personal taste. (Similarly, the Academy Award). However, if you want to read her works in English, they can be found on amazon.com. Here's the link to her works:
