Philosophy is the love of wisdom, the pursuit of knowledge, and a critical analysis of what we think we know about ourselves, our society, and our universe. In the uncertain world in which we live, it is more important than ever to understand the beliefs of others. By finding out how others think and reason, the world in which we live can become more meaningful and the distance between different cultures and belief systems could be narrowed.
