Philosophy: Think About It
The western philosophic tradition dates back to antiquity beginning with the teachings of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Philosophy encompasses the most basic fundamental human pursuits of knowledge and wisdom. Philosophical works can be traced to almost every major political and social movement from the reformation to women’s liberation. The study of philosophy is not limited to a single field of inquiry. Philosophers use rational reasoning to seek the answers to questions of truth, justice, ethics, religion, language, and even the very nature of existence. Interested in learning more?
