What the heck.

Science is a subsect of philosophy. Natural philosophy.

Do you know the difference between MS and Mphil degrees.

Yes, a MS degree is usually a one year research degree, whereas a Mphil is more extensive and requires more time, it usually is rewarded to those who fail to obtain a PhD (Philosophy Doctorate), which is still rewarded to the sciences.

So here is the problem. MS and Mphil are differentiated on the basis of extent of study details, not on the basis of fields as if science is just a subset of philosophy.

Well how they reward degrees is mostly tradition than actual precision in what the titles mean. I mean I definitely will not have doctorate level philosophy skills, even though my degree is a Doctorate of Philosophy. My skills are all in science, which is a narrow subdivision if philosophy.

So I kind of agree to your beef, but traditions die hard....

I agree, leave these degrees, another problem is the parts of philosophy other than science, other subsets?

I think science was originally a branch of philosophy, called natural philosophy. If you have the title doctor (Dr.) outside of medicine, it's almost always because you have a PhD, which is Latin, but translates into "Doctor of Philosophy".

In modern day terms, the main difference is that a philosopher will gaze long at the moon, and deduce that it is perfection, for everything is just a shade of grey. The Moon, being grey, is the natural embodiment of that perfection.

Whereas, a scientist will build a rocket and fly to the moon, and see it as next to useless, in an abstract way.
