In this paper the authors research and comment on how Croatian philosophers view themselves. In part, the research is founded on previous similar research and was carried out by means of questionnnaires given to Croatian philosophers. The questions combined factual issues as well as self–assessment concerning consistence in their work, that is regarding their academic qualifications and professionalism. Results were quite self–defeating but in keeping with other research of this kind. Thus one could say that the average Croatian philosopher is not particularly academically qualified (eg. few published works of any kind in domestic journals and multiple topics dealt with during a sufficiently long period of time,
etc.) which means, in other words, that though he/she may be a philosopher in the sense of fulfilling minimal requirements, he/she is in fact not academically qualified in the sense that is presumed in flourishing philosophical communities.
