Philosophy and education both involve thinking and actively using the mind. They are intrinsically related but not the same.

Education is the more formal process of learning but philosophy is something that can develop with age from our experiences and it shapes how we view the world.

Once we philosophize about something for a while we can learn something valuable about ourselves and our lives and this in itself is a personal education; a journey of discovery.

Education is usually seen as formal lessons which we have in school and philosophy less structured. Yet both are part of life's learning and are inevitably valuable.

Great thinkers have written about their philosophy on a wide range of subjects and if we are taught about this in a scholarly way it becomes part of our education. Therefore if enough structured thought and attention is given to a subject which has not already been thoroughly examined it can then be passed on in a learning situation so that philosophy can turn into education.

Philosophy requires a certain depth of thought to develop. It is generally mature people who start to have philosophies about aspects of life which have so far not been adequately explained or addressed in the education system.

The word philosophy comes from the Greek "philosophia" meaning love of wisdom and it is believed the Greek thinker Pythagoras was possibly the first person to be described as a philosopher.

Now philosophy is studied at universities and has become a vast subject encompassing, among other things, logic, ethics, metaphysics, religion and politics.
