Thinking

Thinking

I could just as well have called this section ‘philosophy’ but I decided to call it ‘thinking’ because not everyone understands what philosophy is.

The word ‘philosophy’ means ‘love of wisdom’ and people who do philosophy are often thought to be wise or clever but the best philosophers know that they are not wise or clever at all and that’s why they are very good at asking questions. The basic questions philosophers ask are:

1. What makes things we do right or wrong?

2. How do we know that something is true or not true?

3. Why do things exist?

4. Who am I?

If you are interested in these questions and want to discuss them then you might be a philosopher.
