The consequences of Einstein’s theory of relativity for thinkers across all disciplines were possibly the most far-reaching of his accomplishments. This is seen in the interpretation of relativity theory by British scientists like Arthur Eddington as a spiritual perspective of the universe.

In many people’s minds, Socrates (469-399 B.C.) is the father figure of Western philosophy since he is both the most outstanding and the most bizarre of the Greek philosophers. He was born and raised in Pericles’ Athens, served his country valiantly as a soldier, and rose to prominence as a sceptic of everything and everyone. Rather than imparting knowledge, his technique of teaching was based on the Socratic Method, which involves asking pupils questions until they come to their own conclusions.

There are two primary branches of Immanuel Kant’s philosophy. The logical comprehension of the notion of nature is the foundation of his theoretical philosophy, which incorporates metaphysics.
