    Philosophy is one of the oldest disciplines in existence and is the vessel for discussions about miracles, gods, and religion - among other things. Over the course of 12 lessons, learn about the history, types and notable characters of the study of philosophy. Plato Footnote delves into the science of philosophy, the philosophy of science, and how separate science and philosophy really are. Learn basics like “what is philosophy?” (literally the ‘love of wisdom’) to subjects like neuroethics, metaphysics, and reductionism.
