I agree that should be the aim. I would only caution there are places philosophy may or may not be able to go with her logic and her language and her knowledge. For example:
Does chocolate ice cream taste better than vanilla?
Is Mozart a better composer than Beethoven?
Are liberals more prescient than conservatives?
Is abortion immoral?
What is meaning of art?
Indeed, in this respect even the smaller questions can be truly baffling.
