Natural philosophers did not test their ideas in a practical way. They preferred a speculative, philosophical approach and [ ]. Philosophy (from Greek: φιλοσοφία, philosophia, 'love of wisdom') is the study of general and fundamental questions about existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Such questions are often posed as problems to be studied or resolved. The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (c. – BCE). Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational.

Natural science is a branch of science concerned with the description, prediction, and understanding of natural phenomena, based on empirical evidence from observation and isms such as peer review and repeatability of findings are used to try to ensure the validity of scientific advances.. Natural science can be divided into two main branches: life science and physical.
