Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. The word “philosophy” comes from the Greek (philosophia), which means “love of wisdom“. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. Philosophers are people who practice the art and science of philosophy. Their wisdom provides insights for the benefit of many future generations of thinkers.
