The issues and problems addressed in philosophy depend on the questions asked and the answers given to them.
We can say that there are three main subjects of philosophy that have remained unchanged since the First Age: Existence, knowledge, value.
“What is being, which deals with being as a whole?” philosophy of being seeking the answer to the question;
“What is the source and value of the information?” philosophy of knowledge seeking the answer to the question;
Examining human life and basic virtues, “What is good?” philosophy of value seeking the answer to the question.
Apart from these, different subjects and sub-branches have emerged according to the ages, historical and social conditions. Subjects and sub-branches of philosophy can be listed as follows in relation to the questions asked:
What is the source of power? (political philosophy)
What is beautiful? (philosophy of art)
What is religion? (philosophy of religion)
What is science? (philosophy of science)
Is accurate information possible? (philosophy of knowledge)
Can anything be said to exist? (philosophy of being)
Are there universal moral rules? (moral philosophy)
