The foundation of any philosophy should contain answers to the most challenging of questions.    If one begins by answering the most overarching existential questions, the answers to less compelling questions may become more readily apparent.   These are a few of the important questions that have challenged philosophers for centuries and upon which most philosophies are constructed:

1) Who am I and where did I come from?

2) What is the nature of reality and how can I know it?

3) What is morality and where does it originate?

4) How do I give meaning and purpose to my life?

5) What is the good life and how do I pursue it?

6) How should we best govern ourselves?
