Studying Philosophy & Ethics

Philosophy is one of the oldest areas of study that deals with fundamental problems of human life such as existence, knowledge and moral principles by using a systematic approach of rational arguments. Applied philosophy focuses on a certain area such as science, law or religion for example. Ethics is closely related to other branches of philosophy such as deontology, axiology (value theory), or moral and political philosophy.
