What is truth? How or why do we identify a statement as correct or false, and how do we reason?
Is knowledge possible? How do we know what we know?

Is there a difference between morally right and wrong actions (or values, or institutions)? Which actions are right and which are wrong? Are values absolute or relative? In general or particular terms, how should I live?
What is reality and what things can be described as real? What is the nature of those things? Do some things exist independent of our perception? What is the nature of space and time? What is the nature of thought and thinking? What is it to be a person?

What is it to be beautiful? How do beautiful things differ from the everyday? What is Art?
