Philosophy, with its quests, and responses given for these quests, reflects multiplicity and antinomial irrelevances rather than totality and relevance in itself. To draw on the premises of various philosophers, it has no direct correlative with the daily life, and it is hailed as an activity starting from the point which diverts from the daily life, and delving into the territories to explore the essence of the things. Fundamental questions to be asked in this manuscript can be articulated as thus: Can there be the teaching of an activity lacking organized knowledge and having no answers to its questions? Is it an occupation which can be operated through some educational criteria? As a form of education, what sorts of behavioural changes can philosophy education aim in a person? Furthermore, are the questions of philosophy or the answers to be instructed? If the answers are to be instructed, whose would these be? In this manuscript, it has been stated that there can be an ample ground for philosophy education through the contribution of such an education to build up an adequate correspondence with philosophy in the life of an individual, thereby constituting a philosophical life. This process has been called as a hermeneutical process in the manuscript
