Constituting the panel of philosophy, Sextus Empiricus tells us there are three types of philosophers: (1) those who claim to have discovered the truth, (2) those who deny that it is possible to obtain it, and (3) those who still seek the truth.  Hence it would be three kinds of philosophy: Dogmatic, academic and skeptical.
The way in which philosophy has concerned philosophers was structured along the centuries.  In this respect the philosophy includes four structures.
After Aristotle, philosophy is divided into: Propaedeutics or introductory philosophy (logic) speculative philosophy (physics, mathematics, metaphysics) practical philosophy (ethics and politics) and philosophy of poetry (art).
St. Thomas Aquinas, on the other proposes the following structure: Propaedeutics philosophy (logic) with branches speculative philosophy: Philosophy of nature (cosmology and psychology), philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of being (ontology and theology), philosophy of practice with branches of philosophy art and moral philosophy (ethics and politics).
Christian Wolff proposes the following structure: Metaphysics (general and special, which includes ontology, psychology, cosmology and theodiceea) and normative sciences (logic, ethics and aesthetics).
In our time are admitted following branches of philosophy: Philosophy descriptors include: Metaphysics (ontology, psychology, cosmology and theodiceea) and criteriologic (logic and epistemology) regulatory philosophy that includes: Axiology, ethics (personal, social, special), policy and aesthetics, and philosophy applied: Subjects of knowledge, institutions or individuals.
