In arts, philosophy (CR:722) (LH:5) (TL:727), from Greek philo- (Φίλο-) meaning “loving”, from phi- (NE:510), aka Ptah’s secret name, code for his life-giving solar fire drill, + -sophia, Greek: σοφία (NE:781), from the noun sophos, Greek: σοφός (NE:1040), meaning “wise” (Barry, 1999), is the art of reasoning or the "reasoning art" (Aurelius, 167AD).
The following are related quotes:
- “Reason and the ‘reasoning art’ (philosophy) are powers which are sufficient for themselves and for their own works. They move then from a first principle which is their own, and they make their way to the end which is proposed to them; and this is the reason why such acts are named Catorthoseis or right acts, which word signifies that they proceed by the right road.”
- “Philosophy should trample underfoot prejudice, tradition, antiquity, shared covenants, authority, in a word, every thing that controls the ‘mind’ of the common herd.”
