Philosophy 101 : Introduction 🦄
April 12, 2020
What is philosophy? What are its characteristic aims and methods? How does it differ from other subjects? I have been trying to dig deeper into philosophy as a subject for a while now albeit quite sporadically. I think its time to do it properly and understand several different areas of philosophy.
What is philosophy?
Philosophy is the activity of working out a way to think about things. When we take a step back and ask ourselves if how it is currently is actually the correct way of looking at or doing things, we are basically doing philosophy - or as some say philosophizing.
Philosophy, in that way, is fundamental because it is related to all other sciences.
