What is philosophy? In the Module 1 area we learned that philosophy begins when people began to try to understand their world by the use of their reason, without appealing to myth or religion. In other words, the philosophers sought things like meaning, value, and a sense of right and wrong without appealing to God. Do you believe that’s possible, or does one need religion to live a good and meaningful life? Defend your view with reference to material in the module and your own experience.
