If you are right that professional philosophers are "hunters for prestige, status, and bourgeois comforts," then I repeat my refrain: professional philosophers are not philosophers. Some philosophers happen to make a living by teaching, but it can't be irrelevant that the majority of those caught up in the various problems of contemporary "philosophy" would identify themselves, or be identified by their peers, as "professional" philosophers.
