The study of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
As opposed to science (which was once called 'natural philosophy'), philosophy is the study of questions that cannot be answered with physical proof, such as the existence of God, or the meaning of life.
Philosophers include Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer, Nietzche...
A worldview common in the West (but held by very few philosophers) which people arive at after very little actual thought. Consists of the notion that there is no single objective truth, and that no one can say anything is true.
Ironically, no one who adheres to relativism can say that relativism is true.
Smart person: "How can you objectively claim that there are no objective claims?"
Relativist: *brain melts* "Stop persecuting me, you xenophobe!"
an adjective used to describe that someone is half crazy, and half genious, but just the right amount.
Most philosophers are daftwell.

correctly quoted as "What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything" in the Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy. it was proposed by philosophers to the great computer "Deep Thought". long story short the answer is 42.
"Oh deep thought, what is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?"
(b.1724-d.1804) German professor of metaphysics at Konigsberg, who perhaps has been the most powerful influence on modern Western philosophical thought.
Kant is known for his theory of transcendental idealism (that we bring innate forms and concepts to the raw experience of the world, which we would otherwise be completely ignorant of). His revolutionary book, 'Critique of Pure Reason' includes this thought experiment: Try to imagine something that exists in no time and has no extent in space. The human mind cannot produce such an idea—time and space are fundamental forms of perception that exist as innate structures of the mind. Nothing can be perceived except through these forms, and the limits of physics are the limits of the fundamental structure of the mind.
Kant's deontological, duty-based moral system is based on his categorical imperative, and it's three formulations: those of Universal Law, Humanity, and Automony.
Kant's ideas have been both copied and condemned, though there is no denying his influence on modern thought. Most philosophers, from Marx to Nietzsche to Wittgenstein have had to either react to the ideas of Kant in one way or another.
Kant also formulated the first modern theory of solar system creation, known as the Kant-Laplace hypothesis.
Kant said: "Happiness is not an ideal of reason, but of imagination."
Overflowing, typically in a non-literal, metaphorical sense. Origins lie in the inability to use real words at important occasions often experienced by artists and philosophers.
"I'm cheffing with relief that I am not you," he said.
