Philosophy

Philosophy (from φιλοσοφία, italic=yes) Such questions are often posed as problems to be studied or resolved. The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (c. 570 – c. 495 BCE). Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational argument, and systematic presentation.Quinton, Anthony. 1995. "The Ethics of Philosophical Practice."
