...God, and capable of merging with the universal god. Such an approach was not incompatible with secular society, and permitted different faiths and sub-faiths to coexist in relative peace and harmony. In the course of defining their philosophy, the scholars of the Upanishad period raised several questions that challenged mechanical theism (as was also done in some hymns from the Rig Veda and Atharva Veda). If God existed as the unique creator of the world, they wondered who created this unique creator. The logical pursuit of such a line of questioning could...

...Defining Philosophy Defining Philosophy Philosophy is the systematic inquiry into the principles and presuppositions of any endeavor. It comes from the Greek word “philo” which means fond of or affinity for, and “sophia” which means wisdom. Bertrand Russell, a philosopher, states that philosophy “is something intermediate between theology and science. Like theology, it consists of speculations on matters as to which definite knowledge has, so far, been unascertainable; but like science, it appeals to human reason..." (What is philosophy?, n.d.)

...Defining the Self Immanuel Kant’s opinion of the self is one that I agree with wholly. Kant was very logical in his opinion and only backed philosophical statements that had bearing. Kant stated that the mind has multiple functions and abilities that make it a complexity (Caruth, 112). This, I have come to acknowledge well within my own life. In the ancient world, men and women had their roles cut out for them. Men were viewed as the creative beings while women were viewed as the domestic beings. Outside of this, there was a perception that none could fulfill the responsibilities of the other. Modernity has, however proved that the human mind is capable of so much more....

This implies that there is more to human life than the material world that surrounds us. Anselm’s ontological approach supports the concept that there is a perfect being i.e. God. However, criticisms have arose against Anselm’s approach, the prominent being Gaunilo of Marmoutiers’ Perfect-Island Concept.

Generally, the term abnormality is defined as an unusual behaviour that is dissimilar from the norms and abnormality constitutes behavioural patterns which do not conform to societal requirements and expectations. “Abnormality is conceived of as a cluster of behaviours” and role cultural social factors remain a significant issue in defining abnormality (Essau, & Petermann, 1997, p.448).

They were to guide the Hebrews to their daily worship and offer a guideline on the do’s and don’ts. This was one way though which they worshiped God.

The historians belief was that there was not a single time when they were in Egypt, and neither had they walked forty years in the desert.
