What is Philosophy?
Philosophy is the study of the nature of reality and existence, what is possible to know, and right and wrong behavior. It comes from the Greek word philosophisa, which means 'love of knowledge.' It is one of the most important areas of human thought as it aspires to achieve in the very meaning of life.
Over the centuries, in every culture, philosophy has given rise to concepts, ideas and analyses, and, through it, set the basis for critical, independent and creative thought. Philosophy helps to strengthen these authentic foundations of peaceful coexistence.
