Philosophy firstly emerged among the Greek and Roman philosophers in the 600 BC. It all started when men began to put their thinking into work, wondering what their purpose on earth actually was. Philosophy began expressly in the west, in the Greek colony of Miletus, where Thales first put a question forward, asking what the basic thing from which all other things on earth were made is. This study became more considered by some others, of which Plato and Aristotle, his student, were involved.

Philosophy was identified with the unique and ridiculous thinking of men. Men began to think and write, coming up with different ideas about what their thoughts and discoveries about life are. This results in what we call different schools of thought in philosophy. This has made philosophy widely studied and expand the more among men, even in schools and colleges. The great mathematician, Pythagoras, was the first to refer to himself as a philosopher.
