When the Western Roman Empire was starting to disintegrate, Augustine developed the concept of the Catholic Church as a spiritual City of God (in a book of the same name), distinct from the material Earthly City. Ironically, it was the very otherness of philosophy in traditional Jewish society that enabled a few Jewish women to study the liberal arts (in preparation for the study of philosophy) long before they were allowed to study halakhic texts. His philosophic ideas, influenced by Neoplatonism and Aristotelianism, are found in his Hegyon ha-Nefesh ha-Aẓuvah ("Meditation of the Sad Soul") and in his messianic treatise Megillat ha-Megalleh ("Scroll of the Revealer").

Thomas Hobbes was the first to apply this methodology systematically to political philosophy and is the originator of modern political philosophy, including the modern theory of a " social contract".

The first query seems to be the more historically apt query, i.e. that the word 'philosopher' was invented [came before] the word 'philosophy', that, according to both Plato and Diogenes Laertius (about Pythagoras), the original point was to distinguish between a "wise man" and "the man who, although himself not wise, ardently desired ["love"] to become wise".
