    Religion and Philosophy are put together?

    What is the relationship between the two, or why did HP put the two together ?

    This is done so that people feel enlightened and not responsible for deciding on one faith.  With Philosophy they can mix and match beliefs from any and all faiths to conform to their personal way of life and value system instead of the requirements God sets out for them in the bible.  Smile!

    I'd say the relationship between religion and philosophy is that they both ask (and attempt to answer) the "higher" and more abstract questions of life: What is the meaning/purpose of life? Where did we come from? Is there a God/Higher Power? If so, how does/should that impact the way we live? Is there life after death? And others. Since some people find their "meaning" in both, as opposed to one or the other, it makes sense to combine them as a category. That, at least, is my understanding.

    Philosophy can be very important in defending faith! Especially the Christian faith which makes claims that can be verified in history. Check out some of my hubs as they come out to see more on the relationship between philosophy and religion. I think it can be an important relationship and can make a world of difference.

    Religion and philosophy can both be one in the same or used to explain one or the other.  There are entire college educations based on this that one can pursue to strengthen their religious enlightenment, empower their argument as to whether or not there is a God as well as examine what the "Soul" is and can it exist separately from the body.

    St. Thomas Aquianas is a good example of a religious philosopher who tackled some of these issues and gives a good perspective.  At very least, if you can understand it (can be difficult to some times) is very thought provoking!

    Good question!

    Because religion is philosophy and philosophy includes religion.
