PHILOSOPHY POSTERS by Max Temkin | News | Design | Arts | Tech | Entertainment | Latest News | The Skunk Pot Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.

Awesome Minimalist Disney Posters FTW Words as Images by Ji Lee Whenever we read a news story, book, letter, or any other form of text our brain relates specific words with previously seen images.
