WILDWOOD PHILOSOPHY DEPARTMENT
Everyone has a philosophy of life, but not everyone realizes they do.
Philosophy in a sense underlies the method or game plan of your life
So, to study different schools of philosophy is to study the history of the human psyche and consciousnes.
How are we aware that we exist and what do we think about it? And what do we do about it?
