Throughout history, people have wondered about the world around them and their own place in it. They have puzzled over what is real. They have discussed what it means to know and believe things. They have argued about the nature of truth. They have asked what it means to lead a good life. And through wondering about all these things, they have tried to understand the world more fully. Philosophy is about asking these big questions about life, so that we can deepen our understanding and act more wisely.
Whenever people look at the world with fresh eyes, think things through more clearly, and ask new questions, they are practicing philosophy. The word “philosophy” comes from a Greek word meaning “the love of wisdom.” But although the word is Greek, philosophy happens all over the world, and in very different civilizations. In some cultures philosophers have always written their ideas down, while in others ideas have been passed on by word of mouth. There are many separate traditions of philosophy around the world.
