Philosophy

The term philosophy comes from the Ancient Greek word“philosophia” meaning “love of wisdom”. The introduction of the terms"philosopher" and "philosophy" has been ascribed to theGreek thinker Pythagoras. As a science, it is concerned with the general andfundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence,knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.

Historically it is divided according to the time and theplace of the origin e.g. medieval or ancient Babylonian philosophy. Thecontemporary definition of philosophy, in plain words, is the combination ofbasic beliefs, concepts and attitudes of an individual or a group.

The study of philosophy is divided into different categories,according to the area of inquiry, such as epistemology, logic, and metaphysics,ethnic and political or aesthetics. Other specialized branches include thephilosophy of language, law, mind, science and metaphilosophy.

According to the stream of thought, the concepts andattitudes that it represents, philosophy is divided into six followingtraditions: German idealism, pragmatism, phenomenology, existentialism,structuralism and the analytic tradition.

The documentaries and video materials compiled in this categoryhave the purpose of simplifying some of the complex ideas and issues of thephilosophical nature.
