Old school notes on philosophy – Divisions of Philosophy

Along with my econ notes I just posted I also found some notes on philosophy!

These notes are a bit modified from what I actually have written down to make more sense. Just like my notes that I posted for econ this is simply the basics of philosophy.

The Divisions of Philosophy

Metaphysics:
Questions relating to being or existence.
Epistemology:
Questions relating to knowledge.
Ethics (Moral, Social, Political, etc):
Questions relating to values.
Logic:
Questions relating to reasoning (Theory of correct reasoning).
