Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems like, where the world comes from, how the earth was formed, does god exist, did god create the world or has the world been in existence eternally,how is it that man thinks, what is the relation between brain and thought, what is the relation between will and ability…..etc. In its broader aspects philosophy examines the various kinds of existence and their interrelationships, in metaphysics; the nature and validity of knowledge, in epistemology and logic; and the nature of value, in ethics and aesthetics.
So, the objective of this subject is to make you read, think, research and critically analyse the world around you. It helps you obtain a self-consistent understanding of things observed. Philosophy helps students prepare for careers in education, research, mass communication, journalism, social work, law, film appreciation, civil services, management studies and gender studies.
