About Us

Hello! Welcome!

Filosofia do Início is a blog about Philosophy and the Humanities. We hope to create a special place for those seeking to explore the vast field of Philosophy. Our mission is to provide educational and informative content on the most varied topics in philosophy, in order to contribute to the development of critical thinking and the promotion of knowledge and reflection on fundamental questions of human existence.

We believe in the power of philosophy in the construction of an ethical and conscious individual, and that philosophy is an essential part of human education and formation. We recognize that each individual is a potential philosopher, with the ability to think for him/herself, explore the world around him/her, and construct the meaning of his/her own life.

Filosofia do Início is currently managed by Sadoque Vieira, who has a degree in Philosophy from the Federal University of Amazonas and is responsible for the revision and creation of new content.

As well as the various currents of thought, such as: stoicism, existentialism, phenomenology, etc.

Our main goal
