In fact, philosophy is the door from which new concepts emerge as a result of critical thinking to solve—or try to solve—humanity’s unanswered questions. Philosophy is the natural response of human beings to the mystery, wonder and uncertainty of life.
Philosophy may not be the most fashionable or even useful branch of Humanities—as a college major, it’s a running joke. But on closer inspection, philosophy is the basis for all the principles and values that sustain a healthy society. It contains and reflects concepts like democracy, justice and human rights.
