Philosophy and the Love of Wisdom « School of Philosophy Auckland There are many reasons why people enjoy the study of philosophy. Philosophy gives us the opportunity to think more deeply about the subjects that really matter to us: e.g. What does it all mean? Who am I? Philosophy deals with the big ideas, which govern human life. Philosophy can simplify, clarify, enrich and provide direction to our lives, especially when other areas of life fall into a state of uncertainty or doubt. Ultimately, Philosophy can raise our awareness, to enable us to see things for what they are and bring us closer to our true selves. Philosophy means: Philo = love of Sophia = Wisdom But what is “wisdom”? The dictionary definition of wisdom is ‘experience and knowledge together with the power of applying them practically.
