Under Linux always no problem. I deleted the package and installed
it again with the above repository:

voss at shania:~/Links/latex> tlmgr 
install biblatex-philosophy
tlmgr: package repository 
[1/1, ??:??/??:??] install: biblatex-philosophy [511k]
tlmgr: package log updated: 
running mktexlsr ...
done running mktexlsr.
running mtxrun --generate ...
done running mtxrun --generate.
