Philosophy

From Coddeau

Aristotle considered Philosophy as the first science. With time various subject matters cropped off to form own Sciences. E.g. Aristotle's Natural Philosophy became Physical Sciences, Question of space and time now belong to Cosmology, the study of mind have recently moved into a branch of Psychology. Linguistics, and Microeconomics have also made the break in the 20th Century. Logic, seems to make the transition to its own Science or part of Mathematics. Philosophy is "the primordial ooze from which the sciences emerge."

Kolakowsky once suggested that it was arguably not worth reading the works of a philosopher who never suspected himself of being a charlatan.
