Practical philosophy, as understood in this context, studies philosophical foundations of ‘practical thinking’ (its metaphysics, epistemology, and logics), with emphasis on values, attitudes to life and norms of behaviour. Value theory and analysis of normative standpoints constitute the core of practical philosophy. The areas of “practical thinking” which are studied in various subdisciplines of practical philosophy are morals (studied in metaethics, normative theory, and applied ethics), law (philosophy of law), politics (political philosophy, social ontology), practical rationality (decision theory, philosophy of action), religion (philosophy of religion) and art (aesthetics).
