Philosophy


Philosophy as a category is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means "love of wisdom".

Unfortunately, I have never had a near-death experience. Fortunately, I also do not have the experience of death. Therefore, for me, what can be more difficult to grasp than “Death”?, thought I and wrote this post.

Both types of death have the same destination but slow death chooses a more poetic journey to the end — a longer route on a slower train. Which type of Death do you wish for?

Indeed, the rest of the western philosophical history is: Plato’s dialogue the Sophist and stranger’s position about non-Being and the simple discussion of the semantics of non-Being; or Hegel’s view of non-Being in the Science of Logic which is only thought in the general...

By: Vladimir Antonov; T. Danilevich, translator

If I was not familiar with his biography, I'd thought he had been a student of our school. For I nev...
