There is no royal viewpoint in philosophy, from which one would be able to assess unmistakenly the value of – for example – metaphysical concepts. No one could take the privileged position – like monarchs from the past who used to overlook battles from the top of a hill.
The cultural background of any thinker, regardless of the epoch they live(d) in, languages they use(d), their life experiences, and physical limitations, are reasons that philosophizing was, is, and will remain more or less conditioned.
Even realizing this very fact is not of much help to philosophers. (Un)fortunately for the rest of the society.
