Foremost, Science can be said to be the making of research about a physical medium and obtaining tangible facts to make proofs. It is related to empirical data for observation, test, and repetition. The means of approach to science is referred to as the scientific method, and it is systematic in nature.

The bases for the explanation of science are the results of experiments, observable facts, and objective evidence. Science is obtained from the Latin word "Scientia," which means "knowledge." In the first instance, science was considered to be a branch of philosophy (natural philosophy), but it detached itself in the 17th century as a separate study.

Hence, philosophy, on the other hand, is a concept that seems to be more difficult to give a specific definition. However, it is widely considered as a concept that uses reason in making an approach to the phenomenon. Philosophy is obtained from the Greek word "Philosophia," which means "the love for wisdom." And philosophy also has many branches.
