Philosopher
A PHILOSOPHER is someone who practices philosophy , which involves rational inquiry into areas that are outside of either theology or science . The term "philosopher" comes from the Ancient Greek φιλόσοφος (philosophos) meaning "lover of wisdom". The coining of the term has been attributed to the Greek thinker Pythagoras
Pythagoras
(6th century BC). In the classical sense, a philosopher was someone who lived according to a certain way of life, focusing on resolving existential questions about the human condition , and not someone who discourses upon theories or comments upon authors. Typically, these particular brands of philosophy are Hellenistic ones and those who most arduously commit themselves to this lifestyle may be considered philosophers

Secularism
SECULARISM is the principle of the separation of government institutions and persons mandated to represent the state from religious institutions and religious dignitaries (the attainment of such is termed secularity ). One manifestation of secularism is asserting the right to be free from religious rule and teachings, or, in a state declared to be neutral on matters of belief, from the imposition by government of religion or religious practices upon its people. Another manifestation of secularism is the view that public activities and decisions, especially political ones, should be uninfluenced by religious beliefs or practices

CONTEMPORARY PHILOSOPHY is the present period in the history of Western philosophy beginning at the end of the 19th century with the professionalization of the discipline and the rise of analytic and continental philosophy . The phrase "contemporary philosophy" is a piece of technical terminology in philosophy that refers to a specific period in the history of Western philosophy . However, the phrase is often confused with modern philosophy (which refers to an earlier period in Western philosophy), postmodern philosophy (which refers to continental philosophers' criticisms of modern philosophy), and with a non-technical use of the phrase referring to any recent philosophic work

Latin
Philosophiae Doctor) is the highest academic degree awarded by universities in most countries . Ph.D.s are awarded for programs across the whole breadth of academic fields. The completion of a Ph.D. is often a requirement for employment as a university professor , researcher , or scientist in many fields. Individuals who have earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree may, in most jurisdictions, use the title of "Doctor " (often abbreviated "Dr") or, in non-English speaking countries, variants such as "Dr. phil." with their name, and may use post-nominal letters such as "Ph.D.", "PhD" or "DPhil" (depending on the awarding institute). The requirements to earn a Ph.D. degree vary considerably according to the country, institution , and time period, from entry-level research degrees to higher doctorates

20th-century Philosophy
20TH-CENTURY PHILOSOPHY saw the development of a number of new philosophical schools— including logical positivism , analytic philosophy , phenomenology , existentialism , and poststructuralism . In terms of the eras of philosophy, it is usually labelled as contemporary philosophy (succeeding modern philosophy , which runs roughly from the time of Descartes until the twentieth-century). As with other academic disciplines, philosophy increasingly became professionalized in the twentieth century, and a split emerged between philosophers who considered themselves part of either the "analytic" or "continental" traditions. However, there have been disputes regarding both the terminology and the reasons behind the divide, as well as philosophers who see themselves as bridging the divide. In addition, philosophy in the twentieth century became increasingly technical and harder for lay people to read
