We often overlook philosophy as a subject. But the truth of the matter is that philosophy is crucial part of us. The origins of the teachings date back to Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Maybe that is the reason we overlook it. We think of those ancient times and how they do not apply to today’s standards.

But that is just plain wrong. We need to look at philosophy and its history so that you can understand how philosophy shapes our lives. Everything we do, and everything that happens around us is part of philosophy and the different views on life.

As a subject, philosophy has always tried to answer crucial questions like “who we are”, “how life was created”, “where are we going” and so on.

Once you start understanding philosophy and different teachings, you will have a much better grasp at life itself. Today, let’s take a look at a crash course of history of philosophy. How it all began, and where are we now.

Fun fact: Back in Ancient Rome and Greece, you couldn’t consider yourself a philosopher without a beard. That is why all philosophers have beards in statues.
