Science and philosophy are similar and confusing terms. The gap between these concepts is closing up, which makes them stronger and harder to differentiate. Science was regarded as a part of philosophy in the 17th century and was called natural philosophy. Science is the study of natural phenomena.

It was gotten from the Latin word “Scientia,” which means knowledge. Science is concerned with empirical data, which are data that can be observed, tested, and repeated. Philosophy is simply based on reasoning.

It is gotten from the Greek word “Philosophia,” which means love of wisdom. Philosophy uses logical argumentation, while science uses empirical data. Philosophy comes to play in instances where measurement and observation cannot be applied.

Philosophy can be characterized as the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, truth, and existence. In the beginning, philosophy clarified everything in the world. Philosophy is a subject that employs reason to discover and comprehend issues such as metaphors, rationality, and epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics.

Everything is clarified in philosophy in essential words and logic that most individuals can understand. Science is the study of life, plants, animals, evolution, scientific methods, and scientific explanation that necessitates support from theories and equations that require thorough examination. .

Scientific text is more methodological, complex, and understanding of mathematical hypotheses. Science was categorized as natural philosophy when it first started to become a common practice.

Foremost, Science can be said to be the making of research about a physical medium and obtaining tangible facts to make proofs. It is related to empirical data for observation, test, and repetition. The means of approach to science is referred to as the scientific method, and it is systematic in nature.

The bases for the explanation of science are the results of experiments, observable facts, and objective evidence. Science is obtained from the Latin word "Scientia," which means "knowledge." In the first instance, science was considered to be a branch of philosophy (natural philosophy), but it detached itself in the 17th century as a separate study.

Hence, philosophy, on the other hand, is a concept that seems to be more difficult to give a specific definition. However, it is widely considered as a concept that uses reason in making an approach to the phenomenon. Philosophy is obtained from the Greek word "Philosophia," which means "the love for wisdom." And philosophy also has many branches.
