    • four BIG IDEAS
      • Philosophy is a discipline that examines the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality,
        and existence.
      • Philosophy provides tools for investigating meaning and fostering understanding of different
        ways of thinking.
      • Examining questions in philosophy allows people to question their assumptions and better understand their own beliefs.
      • While philosophical questions often examine issues with no definitive
        answers, logic and reasoned arguments can show which answers have more or less value.
