- I was unaware of the need for it to pass such measures, so I apologize if I offended anyone; I simply decided that there was enough philosophy in Star Trek to merit it deserving its own category in the Society and Culture Portal...and if necessary, I was (and am...) willing to simply write up the whole thing myself, beginning to end, for everyone else to use, based on the similar templates, like for Religion, and so forth. --ChrisK 11:36, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Note: Was unaware of the need for this sort of consensus when creating the categories; placing them here for, as mentioned, apparently-required authoritative nod.
Category:Philosophy. Religion has its own category, and philosophy, being what it is, is the backbone for such beliefs beforehand; you cannot have thought without philosophy, and so what cultures believe is vitally important to the subject matter of their worldviews. Philosophy is also not applicable to being a Science category, as the subject existed in Greece at a time when it basically meant the exact same thing as Science itself. In those pages/articles that had reference to certain ones (Romulan philosophy, for instance) being academic disciplines: that actually, according to what I've learned on Memory Alpha as a whole, cannot necessarily be stated, as one does not then know whether it is (or rather, they need a reference to it being) taught at given academies and universities. --ChrisK 11:48, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
