Has the advance of science contributed to the advance of philosophy?

Has the advance of science contributed to the advance of philosophy?]

It seems to me that one can only make that assessment on an individual by individual basis – as what each individual means by the terms science and philosophy will be specific, and may or may not be shared with others to various degrees.

To me, at their best, science and philosophy are the same thing, the search of the possible with reference to how interpretations and evidence seem to work in reality.

To me, it is clear beyond any shadow of reasonable doubt, that if one is interested in having a reasonable probability of long term survival with reasonable degrees of freedom and reasonable sets of tools and energy and concepts with which to responsibly exercise that freedom, then one must accept that demands cooperative systems and the acceptance of any and all diversity that is not an unreasonable threat to existence.

For me, science and philosophy have converged on that assessment.
