Note (2): Natural Philosophy

In natural philosophy, we discussed the phenomenon in the Nature world, including cosmology, material objects, space, time, motion, natural law, and the origin of life, etc. I think the range is wider than physics and science, because natural philosophy also discuss something metaphysical. The major difference between natural philosophy and science 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)

Considered to be either the counterpart, or the precursor of modern science (source)

Studies of cosmology, chance, elements and quantities of nature.  In today’s univ, occupied mainly by Physics professors.
