Practical philosophy enquires into the human being as a sentient, willing, and acting being who is subject to moral laws and produces forms of community.

The subject of systematic work is the nature of human thought and action: philosophy of mind and language, epistemology, moral philosophy, theory of action. The classical authors who are most significant are Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Kant, Hegel, Frege, Wittgenstein.
