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 the
Greek thinker Pythagoras. As a science, it is concerned with the general and
fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence,
knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.
Historically it is divided according to the time and the
place of the origin e.g. medieval or ancient Babylonian philosophy. The
contemporary definition of philosophy, in plain words, is the combination of
basic 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 the
philosophy of language, law, mind, science and metaphilosophy.
According to the stream of thought, the concepts and
attitudes that it represents, philosophy is divided into six following
traditions: German idealism, pragmatism, phenomenology, existentialism,
structuralism and the analytic tradition.
