I often think that the term itself (Theosophy) has become too narrow,
and is associated with a specifically doctrinal position. What is
sometimes called 'small t' theosophy properly includes all disciplines
which may generally be thought of as "god-wisdom" - and one who is
*wise* practices wisdom. In fact, what else can be done with wisdom?
Wisdom is surely not a cerebral activity, but a living, doing thing, a
way of living.
In other words, I agree with you! However, maybe we need a wider
concept/word/term than "Theosophy" to describe what needs to be done.
