Lately, I have been wondering about the differences and similarities between practical philosophy and metaphysics. There is a lot of overlap between the two subjects.
Practical philosophy uses philosophical ideas and incorporates them into everyday life. It focuses on life skills (decision making, interpersonal relationships, and ethics for example) and tends to be reflective in nature.
Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that is also practical and reflective in nature. It covers a lot of the same topics as practical philosophy. Metaphysics also covers topics dealing with unexplained phenomena.
I think the main difference is metaphysics deals more with spirituality and religion when trying to answer questions about the origin and meaning of life
That’s my thoughts on the subject, but I would love to know what you think about it.
