    1. In the main psychological and philosophical dictionaries, textbooks, and leading world encyclopaedias there are for the most part three different opinions of the origin of this term which, as the word denoting scientific or philosophic dealing with the phenomena of psychic (subjective, conscious) life, has now come into very wide use. All the three names connected with the formation of the term "psychology" are the names of the people of German origin from the 16th century. Two of them are of little significance: Rudolf Göckel and Otto Casmann, while the third is very famous and generally known: Filip Melanchton

      It is important to state that these three names are important for the origin of psychology. Though the original philosopher may be unclear, the names listed in the paragraph were the first to document using the term "psychology".

    1. The Incoherence also marked a turning point in Islamic philosophy in its vehement rejections of Aristotle and Plato.

      The Incoherence of the Philosophers by al-Ghazali marks a dramatic turn in Islamic philosophy away from Aristotle and Plato which had been followed by previous Arab philosophers like Avicenna and al-Farabi.

    2. the Tahāfut al-Falāsifa ("Incoherence of the Philosophers") is a landmark in the history of philosophy, as it advances the critique of Aristotelian science developed later in 14th-century Europe.[35]

    1. தத்துவ அறிஞன் கலைஞன் என்றால் வரும் காலம் அவனை கண்டுகொள்ளும் என்ற நிச்சயம் ஏது, இவ்வாறான கேள்விகள் மூலம் அனைத்தையும் விலக்கி ஏதுமில்லா வெளியில் இருந்துகொண்டிருந்தேன். பின்பு ஓரிடத்தில் ரமண மஹரிஷியின் ஒரு மேற்கோள் படித்தேன்- “How do you treat others?” “There are no others” அனைத்துமாதல் என்பது எவ்வளவு மகத்தானது. முன்பு நீங்கள் சொன்ன ஒரு கதை நினைவுக்கு வந்தது. தன் வயலின் மேல் ஒரு கொக்கு அமர்ந்த போது உடல் விதிர்த்த விவசாயி அந்த வயலாகவும் கொக்காகவும் கூட இருக்கிறான். அனைத்தையும் தானாக்கி தன்னை அனைத்துமாக்கி என்றுமிருத்தலே விடை. வெண்முரசு என்றும் இருக்கும். அதை இயற்றியதால் நீங்களும்வாசிப்பதால் நானும் கூட.நன்றி.
