Philosophical concepts In a perspective more global, but specific and classic, certainly that it is possible to advance some ideas of what is, and also of what is not, the Philosophy. Because one is difficult, seno impossible, exactly definiz it, then let us take refuge us in the possibility to clarify what it is not, leaving to the reading patient of this work, the ungrateful task to conclude, with all its wisdom, what he is, then, the Philosophy. Invoking Julian Marias, some steps of its thought are transcribed: ‘ ‘ For Philosophy they had been understood, mainly, two things: a science and a way of life. (…) Both the non-separable dimensions are e, of fact, had never appeared total off.

The Philosophy is a life way, an essential way that, exactly, it consists of living in a certain science and, therefore claims, it and demands. It is therefore a science that determines the direction of philosophical life. (…) In Aristotle the Philosophy is a rigorous science, the wisdom or to know par excellence. The science of the things while they are. (…) After de Aristotle, from the death of Alexander and to follow the Roman Empire all, the Philosophy is emptied of scientific content and is gone converting, each time more, in a life way, of the calm and imperturbvel scholar, who is the human ideal of the time. In the Christianity with Saint Augustin and S. Toms the Philosophy will be moved enters a Theological science and a Philosophical science. At the time Modern, with Discardings, it is understood as a science for the life.

One is about living, to live in certain way what becomes, over all, what if it must make. The Philosophy as a life way that claims a science. Kant comes to speak to us of a pertaining to school concept and a mundane concept of Philosophy: for the first one, it is a system of all the philosophical knowledge; for as, it is the science of the relation of all the knowledge with the essential ends of the reason human being.

To produce a project of easy use, it is necessary flexibility, allegiance to the original text, logical structure and adequacy to the studied subject, utility of job and personal matrix. Already the types of summaries can be divided in: description or indicative, analytical, critical news or, summary and synopsis. The technique to summarize in what it says respect the paragraphs and chapters, can be summarized applying it technique to underline, writing the summary for the organization of the phrases, based in the underlined words.
