Why philosophy is queen of all sciences?
Philosophy is regal, womanly regal. It was the earliest to develop out of human thoughts. It is considered a mother to all sciences. It in fact spawns sciences. Philosophy attempts speculation on things when science is not able to test them. Philosophy forms hypotheses which, when it becomes equipped enough, Science puts to tests and either proves to theories or discards as fallacies. Philosophy walks in front of science leading it, and progresses through science into newer hypotheses, unsatiatingly. Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art. Leaving her gains to her children, i.e., the sciences, philosophy like a regal queen mother passes on discontentedly to the yet unexplored things which she alone can speculate on.

Sience is objective and requires empiracle evidence. Philosophy is subjective and does not require empiracle evidence.
The question as you ask it is meaningless. A modern conception of analytic philosophy deriving from the logical positivists would argue that philosophy is subordinate to scie…nce inasmuch as it is the 'handmaiden' of the sciences. Such people would claim that the purpose of philosophy is to ensure conceptual clarity in other disciplines. Other modern philosophers, particularly those in the mould of the later Wittgenstein, and the continental folk, would describe philosophy as articulating a profoundly different way of doing things: of understanding the world, as opposed to knowing more about it. It's worth noting that science was initially undifferentiated from philosophy in ancient times, and most sciences have grown out of philosophy. Physics used to be natural philosophy; psychology grew from the philosophy of mind...
Philosophy itself is not usually considered a social science. The most common social sciences are considered psychology and sociology.
Because it uses the tools of science to explore humans.
The discipline of philosophy sprung from various minds having different life experiences which helped to mold their way of thinking; their way of explaining life's vagarie…s. So, who is to say which model is correct? One point of view can be just as valid as the next. There is no empirical evidence to say which thinkers' viewpoint is the absolute correct one. Whereas, science deals in hard verifiable facts which have been replicated by other scientists following the same experiment parameters. A fact, in science has been nailed down three ways from center using the Scientific Method, before it can be labelled as scientific fact.
Type your answer here... yes philosopy is the branch of seince
Philosophy underpins political theory, which is vital to modelling empirics and understanding the normative valuation of politics and political interaction.
Philosophy is a science that systematically develops a hypothesis on a premise with analytical tools to resolve the problem through logical reasoning (induced or deduced).It i…s always open for debates as a human endeavor to seek the Truth through learnt knowledge. Philosophy is an art because you require inherent skills & natural ability to apply the philosophical principles.
no it isn't . Philosophy trys to look at reality through religon. Science does it through experimentation. Actually philosophy does not look at reality through religion! It l…ooks at reality through Logic and Reason. It also criticizes religion and science by using these philosophical methods. So philosophy is not a science, it is a way of analyzing truth claims......but if you consider mathematics a science....then philosophy is a kind of science because it uses formal logic (discrete mathematics) to solve truth claims. Scientists will gush on forever at the power of science, and rightly so, but many dismiss philosophy.This is probably due to lack of understanding. Philosophy can help to clear up fuzzy thinking and unreasoned arguments, therefore it is a helpful and powerful tool to help us understand the world.
because it is the study of life.
math is the quen of sience becaus without math there would be no sience
As a philosopher, I have to ask, can this be answered with a sentence or paragraph? And would we want to answer it like that? For some the answer could be a sentence, for othe…rs it might take a bit more. Philosophy is the ultimate quest a human can take, it forces the individual to question his own validity. His own lack of expertise in the many different areas of life. Mostly, language, math, and science. Although the basic premise of philosophy, given up front to a student, may scare off would-be honest philosophers. The idea is that, you realize you are not God, and you basically figure out where you fit in. Hopefully you fit in somewhere between God and a Cockroach. The idea is that, from the point of your own honest assessment, of where you are, you move away from being a cockroach, and move towards being more like God. By questioning your own actions, and motivations. Your level of self truth. This usually frees the individual up to clean up fields of science, that are normally in disarray. Basically, changing the world from flat to spherical again. By stopping lightning from killing bell tower ringers, with a simple lightning rod. Or allow once again man to walk on other heavenly bodies other then earth. Although Scorates was perhaps the founding father of soul searching. It was Benjamin Franklin that took it up another notch. By acts of unselfishness, he advanced science and medicine to amazing new heights in just a few years. He would not patent his inventions, but rather made them available to all. Part of the truth is, we can better relate to Benjamin Franklin then we can Socrates. Benjamin Franklin was also in a place that allowed much more rapid change. But both men cause a slight embarrassment to modern man. Because we have not advanced much from where they were. Benjamin Franklin, learned perhaps from the lessons of Socrates and Jesus. What a government, and people, gone mad, will do to honest stand up citizens. And adjusted his approach to the problem accordingly. Benjamin Franklin although not a Christian, revered Jesus for his, actions, lessons and warning. But you cannot take anything away from the man that created the foundation for truth, Socrates. Truth makes the kind of community where patents are not necessary. And your word is worth more then any sum of paper notes. Stellar individuals that followed Socrates, Jesus Christ and others that stood and died for truth. Had the advantage of the lessons and failures of these original brave men. I am sure that neither Socrates or Jesus would want any of us, to suffer their fate for being truthful. However they both have gotten the message to us, that it is better to die an honest man, then to be a hypocrite, a coward. Philosophy gets its bad name from poor philosophers, not honestly questioning their own moral collapse, or their real misunderstandings. But rather questioning reality, until they actually distort it. By their want of answers to questions, that they can understand. The bottom line, real philosophy, is about truth. If a great scientist is doing an experiment, if he is truthful, he will realize that much of his skills in chemistry, come from his mothers cooking. And the ingredients and methods of preparation and interaction between the substances. The failed cakes and casseroles and the successful ones, all added to his skill. An oil fire in his mothers or aunts kitchen might have saved the chemists life, while experimenting. This chemist if he does realize the source of his success, will be able to share the success of his experiment, and the many ways it might have failed. Because he can relay the true source of its success. And relay methods and actions to prevent other scientists from failure in their lab, and to avoid accidents. Basically a philosopher, takes out the suicidal aspect of contest or status quest. Those things become hearty comedy amongst fellow scientists. Philosophers are misunderstood, because some believe we look up into space and just dream about nonsense. However philosophers are usually the only ones that totally grasp any field. Because they have good knowledge in all fields of science, math and language. "Universal knowledge" is its own definition, you cannot just shun the rest of the fields of science, and perfect some tiny portion of knowledge in one field. All history totally forbids your success. You may achieve some projects success. But in moving back to see the whole picture, you will have conceded to and helped the destruction of truth in other fields and your own. Your success will be short lived, your project misunderstood and not duplicated well. An honest philosopher can be depressing because, he does see the whole picture. And sometimes the picture is ugly. However, that is fuel to a real philosopher. Most do not know the speed at which Benjamin Franklin was moving to bring about a higher form of living. From a very ugly picture of slavery, and the destruction of the importance of the soul. The founding fathers of America were all amazing philosophers.
Most sciences require empirical evidence (that which is gained from physical interaction and observation), philosophy does not. While empirical evidence effects philosophy. ph…ilosophy does not impact the empirical sciences (Chemistry, Biology, etc...)
Because science has ALL the subjects in it. (Math, reading, history, technology etc.)
Philosophy, is basically theoretical science. The ancient Greeks thought they could figure out the mysteries of the universe, just by thinking about them. Of course, you're no…t going to get very far in science, without being able to prove what you're thinking is true. So Galileo Galilei, comes along with a solution to the problem and says you have to use experimentation. The ancient Greeks where pure philosophers, who where responsible for the famed library at alexsandria. Philosophy is called the parent science, because out of it came all other science. And people like Galileo, Newton, and Einstein are some of the very big stepping stones to modern science.
In many circles philosophy is considered the basis or "mother" of sciences is because philosophers like Aristotle, Socrates, Plato and other ancient Greek men of letters delve…d into the natural world to explain their surroundings. That all matter is composed of water, earth, air and fire as per the mind of Empedocles, was embraced by men such as Aristotle.
