Discussion, among friends, as a way to understand the world better





The original meaning of the word philosophy comes from the Greek words philein, "to love", and sophia, or wisdom.

The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (c. 570 – 495 BCE).       




“I think therefore I am” (“Cogito, ergo sum”) – René Descartes

“Science is what you know. Philosophy is what you don't know”Bertrand Russell

“If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him”Voltaire

“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance”Socrates

“Is man merely a mistake of God's? Or God merely a mistake of man's?”Friedrich Nietzsche

“There is only one thing a philosopher can be relied upon to do, and that is to contradict other philosophers”William James
