About the profession
"I am a philosopher", - Pythagoras replied to the tyrant Leont on the question "Who are you?" Thus, in the sixth century BC, the terms philosopher and philosophy arose. Its history began in antiquity, since at that time the people's desire for independent critical knowledge of the world and themselves was formed into a vivid spiritual movement that has not stopped for two and a half thousand years. Modern philosophers still solve the most important and complex problems of being, society and cognition, outrunning scientists and rivaling other spiritual leaders of mankind.
