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 looks 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.
The philosophy of the science of biology is: life is interesting.

Philosophy is a humanity, therefore more accurately an art. There can be an element of science in the form of logic to philosophy, but it is far more than science.
Philosophy is subjective and science is objective.
If you understand the philosophy of science you will better appreciate the value of science, and the reason why science is better than pseudo-science.
Philosophy is a science by it self.Human society is a laboratory for its experiments.
Ethics is usually a discussion in philosophy. However there is the interdisciplinary study of the philosophy of science, which has a branch that deals with ethics in science.
philosophy and the science are both human intellectual activities.
Unlike science, philosophy is not based on observable truths or known facts.

Yes, philosophy is an abstract science.
Philosophy, religion, and science are related in that they form the basis of humanity's search for truth. Humans are rational beings in that they have an insatiable desire for wisdom and knowledge. Science attempts to answer questions about what is and how. Philosophy and religion attempt to answer questions about what ought to be and why. Humanity's search for wisdom is reflected by philosophy and religion while the search for knowledge is reflected by science. Philosophy and science is different from religion in that religion is usually based on divine revelation and authority whereas philosophy and science are not.
Morality is a branch of philosophy, not science.
"Is semantics a Philosophy or a science" is a question of concern. In order to answer it we , firstly, need to know about philosophy and science. Philosophy, in simple words, is knowledge. It is a rational investigation of truths and principles of being, knowledge or conduct. Science, on the other hand, is the emperical evidence of knowledge. These evidence, are based on experience or observation. Though observation or experience or experiment the knowledge we get is called science. When we know know what philosophy and science are, we can nominate semantics both. Semantic is philosophy and science as well. We know that semantics is the study of meaning. It is meaning of the words and sentences as well. When we say that semantic is a philosophy, it means we know the
ethics usually a discuss in philosophy. however there is the interdisciplinary study of the philosophy of science which has that deal with has a branch that deals with ethics in science.

Philosophy is no longer a field of Science at all. Science, specifically Physics, did develop from Philosophy, and other Sciences developed from Physics. This (above) explains the term "PhD" (Doctor of Philosophy) and "Physician". There are many differences between Philosophy and Science. The most important is probably that Science deals exclusively with physical objects (living or not), while Philosophy has a wider area of concern. Also, in Science, questions can (often) be answered by performing an experiment. If everyone agrees that the experiment was designed and done well, the results are accepted as "the correct answer." It is not like that in Philosophy.
Most scientists and most philosophers would not consider philosophy to be a science. However, both science and philosophy are characterized by very careful thought and analysis and scholarship. Both are engaged in an effort to understand the universe in which we live. However, scientists emphasize observation, while philosophers emphasize abstract thought. There is certainly some overlap between these subjects, and there is even such a subject as the philosophy of science. There is not, however, a science of philosophy.
