Interesting that someone questioned on the internet if Economics could be the fourth science, the others being Physics, Chemistry, and Biology? Note that Physics is the study of Energy; Chemistry is the study of Potential Energy, or Mass; and Biology is the study of Carbon Chemistry. Economics would be the fourth science that describes how human beings (Biology) interact (Chemistry) with the physical universe (Physics) to enable them to make better choices.
Philosophy is a process function; an activity that responds to societyâ€™s demand for wisdom, bringing together all that we know in order to obtain what we value. Its use of logic and critical thinking made it an indispensible instrument of study for all disciplines. It arises from contemplating on wonders with curious desire to know and understand phenomena in the universe. Hence, this in article, we shall adopt a conceptual analytical method of Kantâ€™s categorical imperative to critically appraise the relevance of philosophy and philosophers to promote human dignity in the contemporary world
