1. Literally, the love of, including the search after,
wisdom; in actual usage, the knowledge of phenomena as
explained by, and resolved into, causes and reasons,

Note: When applied to any particular department of knowledge,
philosophy denotes the general laws or principles under
which all the subordinate phenomena or facts relating

called physics; when it treats of man, it is called
anthropology and psychology, with which are connected
logic and ethics; when it treats of the necessary
conceptions and relations by which philosophy is
possible, it is called metaphysics.
Note: ``Philosophy has been defined: tionscience of things
divine and human, and the causes in which they are

things possible, inasmuch as they are possible; -- the
