Area Studies is an umbrella name for hundreds of area-based interdisciplinary academic fields. The most useful division is by countries. Countries are political entities rather than geographical units. Still, the geographical division of countries seems very usefull. Note that the geographical division of the world into geographical regions and continents is academicaly debatebale. Key resources: the United Nations geoscheme (see M49 Standard).

Philosophy is an academic discipline that studies human reason, basic concepts and principles underlying thought and action, the essence of human existence and the meaning of life and the theoretical foundations of knowledge, through logical and systematic thinking. There is no consensus on the definition of the term "philosophy", its scope and its division into fields and subfields. Here, the initial division is between the fields that are part of the meta-knowledge of philosophy (listed in the 'Theory' section) and the philosophical fields, which form the field of philosophy. The philosophical fields are organized according to five emphases: the explored phenomena (i.e., these are the main branches of philosophy), the knowledge fields (i.e., these are subfields of philosophy focusing on the theoretical foundations of specific fields: for example, philosophy of chemistry), the philosophical stances (i.e., these are subfields of philosophy focusing on specific schools and traditions), the cultural environments (e.g., western and non-western philosophies) and the historical periods (e.g., ancient, medieval, renesanse, modern, and contemporary philosophies). Note, that the five divisions are collectively exhaustive but not mutually exclusive (meaning, they cover the field but there are partial overlaps among them).
