Word of the Day

Confidence

Early 15c., from Middle French confidence or directly from Latin confidentia, from confidentem (nominative confidens) “firmly trusting, bold,” present participle of confidere “to have full trust or reliance,” from com-, intensive prefix (see com-), + fidere “to trust” (see faith). Traditional definition: having strong belief or full assurance; sure: confident of fulfillment.

Passion

From the Latin “passio” action to bear, endure, suffer
The passion in philosophy is a central concept, which refers to the conception of subjectivity. For philosophers of freedom, passion is a “disease of the soul” (Kant), for the rationalist philosophers (Plato, Descartes), they blur the trial and prevent access to truths. Whereas for the Romantics (Hegel, Schelling, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, …), the passion intensifies life, stands for liberation.

Acid-Base Homeostasis:

Acid–base homeostasis is the part of human homeostasis concerning the proper balance between acids and bases, also called body pH. The body is very sensitive to its pH level, so strong mechanisms exist to maintain it.
