if not, or is it Art?

We have theories about philosophy, but there is no way to prove, test, or verify them.
We have to FEEL in order to bring out meaning from philosophy, but LOGIC is still wt matters.

So, wt is it? How do u define philosophy?

personal point of views are welcomed :)

i once had this feeling: Science and philosophy are reciprocal.
they are both seeking the same ultimate quest.

in sense of science, it is the ORIGIN OF HUMAN.
in sense of philosophy, it is the MEANING OF LIFE.

they are one positive, one negative, in the reverse, 2 extremes of the same question.

therefore, i somehow think they can be each other.

and then, i wonder, which one of them will get to the answer first. and which way should human choose to go. i feel like stucking in the middle..lol

I'm with you Winglee, I like the middle road to this equation!

“We have artists with no scientific knowledge and scientists with no artistic knowledge and both with no spiritual sense of gravity at all…the time for real unification of art and technology is really long overdue.”

- Robert M. Pirsig Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

The sciences are the windows through which philosophy views the world – Will Durant

...together they can form a coherent world-view
