Philosophy of Science and Religion Concerning the nature of Humanity and of Reality So, what does it mean to study philosophy? Where did the concept of "philosophy" come from? What was the motivation behind it? Understanding the goals of philosophers and what motivated these goals is the key to understanding the sorts of questions they ask and their proposed methods of answering them. Philosophy is the systematic study of reality using good reasoning in order to clarify difficult questions, solve significant problems, and enrich human lives. Don Hainesworth - Author The main focus in the writing of this book has been to communicate the central ideas and philosophical concepts of the nature of humanity and of reality. This text presents a comprehensive overview of the subject at a level which carries the reader beyond the generalizations necessary in philosophy and science books. The text focuses on the logical development of the individual topics and gives only the main historical interconnections. This book contains no advanced scientific or theological concepts, and no complicated scientific formulas are written down for analysis. However, it does present many scientific, theological and philosophically related concepts in various chapters; some of which overlap into subsequent chapters. This is stressed in order to reinforce a particular idea and maintain historical continuity. It is not assumed that the reader has an understanding of philosophical claims and theories. Therefore the text provides the reader with enough relevant information to secure his or her confidence in understanding the philosophy of science and religion.
