I still argue with anyone that the single most important philosphical question in society based reality is "how do I act". Like how do I make decisions and why.
Kant has a lot of work here in epistemology According to Kant, it is vital always to distinguish between the distinct realms of phenomena and noumena. Phenomena are the appearances, which constitute the our experience; noumena are the (presumed) things themselves, which constitute reality. A priori knowledge or justification is independent of experience, as with mathematics (3 000 + 2 000 = 5 000), tautologies ("All bachelors are unmarried"), and deduction from pure reason (e.g., ontological proofs). A posteriori knowledge or justification is dependent on experience or empirical evidence, as with most aspects of science and personal knowledge.
