Discuss the origin of philosophy
The word Philosophy is derived from the Greek word philosophia which denotes the “love for wisdom”. It pertains to the study of general and significant questions about existence, knowledge, values, reason and other phenomena. The incorporation of philosophy to human knowledge and understanding was rooted or birthed as a result of failure by other fields of human study to completely explain the nature of human lives, its surrounding and constituting happenings. As such, its emergence was meant to address the very loopholes that were not clearly handled or not handled completely to human quest by other fields of human interest like religion, history and sociology. In this essay, close examination will be given to the origin of philosophy as a field of human study and robust discussion on each case will be given.
