Note (2): Natural Philosophy
In natural philosophy, we discussed the phenomenon in the Nature world, . I think the range is wider than physics and science, because natural philosophy also discuss something metaphysical. The major difference between and lies in the "goal." Science searches for "what" and "how" in the Natural world; however, natural philosophy searches for "why" (the ultimate reason). Therefore, these two kinds of knowledge can exist at the same time and they do not conflict. (Alfonso Liu)
