WHAT IS PHILOSOPHY?

The name ‘philosophy’ derives from two ancient Greek words ‘philos’ meaning love, and ‘sophia’ meaning wisdom.

Why is wisdom so highly valued? How can it help us to live well?

This lesson explores these questions and related issues by engaging in a philosophical inquiry. We use discussion and classification exercises to explore the difference between wisdom and knowledge, and to try and discover how we can become wiser.
