New to philosophy

  1. Oct 18, 2005 #1
    Helllo all,

    I was just wondering what are the similarities and differences do philosophy and religion have with one another?

    I believe that each religion, insofar as it uses logical reasoning, is an example of philosophy. That's the only similarity that i can think of.

    Please elaborate more. What counts as philosophy? What counts as religion? What are characteristic traits of each?
