Many years ago, I made this drawing to illustrate a picture of Philosophy often presented at school. Most of the ancients did classify Logic as a part (or, branch) of Philosophy, although Aristotle did not. (an "analysis" or breaking-down-into-parts of "the forms of thought"); and his followers (the Peripatetics, and later the Scholastics) called his works about logic the Organon ("tool" or "instrument"); thus the expression "logic is ". In contrast to Aristotle, Wittgenstein in his stated the view that logic is the foundation (basis) of philosophy -- what it is built on, not merely what it is built with.

Would the work of someone who rejected logic be called philosophy? or by 'philosophy' do we mean essentially a critical use of reason? There are, however, philosophers, e.g. Wittgenstein, who reject the traditional account of logic, e.g. that contradiction is sure proof that a proposition is false or that a combination of words is nonsense. Because and some non-contradictions-in-form are nonetheless self-contradictory. As Wittgenstein's examples show, contradiction in form is not the touchstone of sound reasoning that philosophers have treated it as being, because meaning is not solely a matter of form but of use in the language.
