Right off the bat I will state that I'm neither a linguist nor an etymologist, but I am a serious English language enthusiast.
On to my question: I have a need to convey that a specific group of people share something (e.g. their wisdom, knowledge, wealth, etc.) with other people that are not necessarily part of said group.
If I said, for example:
Philosophers can share their wisdom with each other.
I would imply that sharing should only take place within members of the Philosophers group.
Since I need to convey that such sharing should also take place with members outside the Philosophers group my thinking is to change the above sentence to:
Philosophers can share their wisdom with others.
I am concerned, however, that this may create the impression that wisdom can be shared only outside of the Philosophers group and not between their members, which is not my intention.
Is my concern valid?
