    Waxing usually means someone has begun talking about something from a certain viewpoint, so waxing philosophical would mean talking from a philosophical viewpoint.

    From a scriptural point of view anyway, the word "waxing" generally means "the process of becoming". Meaning "becoming philosophical"... however, I could be totally off the mark here because you didn't give the context of the phrase, but this could be an explanation.

    Waxing philosophical just means you are becoming increasingly philosophical as the discussion goes on.

    It just means when someone gives an opinion that is purely his philosophy. It's probably not a lie-but just one man's opinion given in a very philosophic way. You dont hear that term used much anymore.
