Top 10 Famous Philosophers
Philosophy is one of the oldest sciences, perhaps even the oldest in the world. We first find philosophy in written form around six centuries before Christ (Pythagoras called the word for the first time), and since then the number of practitioners (philosophers or philosophers) has steadily increased.Philosophy is the study of fundamental problems surrounding reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, language and so on. It strives for knowledge and wisdom. The word philosophy comes from ancient Greek, and it literally means ‘love for wisdom’. Filo in ancient Greek means love (think of heterophilia, and homophilia, for example). Sofie comes from the word sophis, which of course means wisdom.
