Intermingling of the Greek prefix "pseudo" and the adjective "philisophical", i.e. falsely philisophical. The intention of creating this word isn't applicable to criticism of philisophical arguments per se, but rather to certain scenes of bad movies or low-budget films in which the dialogue contains lines which were probably the film director's attempt at being philisophical, but is in fact unintelligible nonsense.
At the beginning of Ed Wood Jr's "Plan 9 From Outer Space", the narrator's purpose is to provide a compelling prophecy of the Future. But unfortunately, it is ultimately pseudosophical rubbish.
