Branches of Philosophy

MetaphysicsEpistemology ◦ Logic ◦ Ethics ◦ Aesthetics ◦ Politics

The Philosophy Index contains a little bit of a more detailed breakdown of each branch’s subcategories,
as well as a list of topics I’ll be covering in videos, eventually.


Soren Kierkegaard thought that living requires a “leap of faith” – whether this leap be religious, or just the leap we make to combat everyday uncertainty.

So at the risk of being too precious, the acronym I’ve decided to use to help remember the branches of philosophy is “ME LEAP.”
