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 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.

The documentaries and video materials compiled in this category have the purpose of simplifying some of the complex ideas and issues of the philosophical nature.

Look closely into the conflict that has been going on since the medieval period. The everlasting battle between science and religion is presented to you by Richard Dawkins in a very shocking and controversial way. From his point of view the world would be better off without religion of any kind.

It is said that the only certain things in life are death and taxes. Discover how the Buddhist doctrine describes death and afterlife. The Tibetan book of the dead is in the center of this story as the essential source of the Buddhist teachings.

From the One World Within productions comes the documentary called “The Sacred Sounds of Creation”, an artistic expression of the conscious state of mind, knowledge, music and visual effects that accompany this extraordinary piece with a single goal to explore the very principals of reality. The realization of this video is a product of collaboration between Jason Gregory and Justin Jezewski.
