The question we ask ourselves, “What is philosophy?” could be answered with a simple one worded answer, or in an encyclopaedia of words. In my opinion, I have to say that it cannot be answered in a simple manner. Philosophy can be branched off into so many different questions or thoughts that you just end up digging a deeper hole every time you ask yourself that same question. The best way that I can explain it, is that it is the study of social knowledge. I say the word social because one person could have a different view, then when two or more people discuss that topic, everyone’s point of view could change.
