Thus far, ...

P = Philosopher (one who does philosophy) or A Philosophy (a set of chosen CPTs)
PT = Philosophers' Tools
CPT = Concept(s)/Principle(s)/Technique(s)
MCPT = Master Concept(s)/Principle(s)/Technique(s) = PT(s)
NP = Non-Philosopher
S = Scientist
SM = Scientific Method
SC = Scientific Code, the Code of Science
DS = Discipline Subject, the subject of study of a discipline
ACPT = Accurate Concept(s)/Principles/Techniques
IACPT = Inaccurate Concept(s)/Principle(s)/Technique(s)

... to which we might add ...

PP = Personal Philosophy, an individual's collection of the CPTs he has chosen for himself
OP = Organizational Philosophy, an organization's collection of CPTs chosen by the organization's officials
