How to Unlock Philosophy in Little Alchemy?

Unfortunately, Little Alchemy doesn’t have Philosophy. This item is available only in Little Alchemy 2.

How to Unlock Philosophy in Little Alchemy 2?

Philosophy can be discovered through 3 different recipes in Little Alchemy 2:

  • Egg + Chicken
  • Human + Idea
  • Human + Story

The simplest and fastest way to get it is with the first recipe, Egg + Chicken. Here are the steps to take:

Get the Egg

  1. Water + Water = Puddle
  2. Water + Puddle = Lake
  3. Water + Lake = Sea
  4. Sea + Earth = Primordial Soup
  5. Fire + Fire = Energy
  6. Primordial Soup + Energy = Life
  7. Life + Fire = Phoenix
  8. Phoenix + Phoenix = Egg

Get the Chicken

  1. Earth + Fire = Lava
  2. Lava + Air = Stone
  3. Stone + Stone = Wall
  4. Wall + Wall = House
  5. Fire + Stone = Metal
  6. Earth + Metal = Plow
  7. Earth + Plow = Field
  8. Field + House = Barn
  9. Barn + Egg = Chicken

The Chicken and Egg is one of the most interesting combos for me in this game since it’s actually a small joke. The question of what is older – the chicken or the egg is a longstanding philosophical question, and to think that the creators of Little Alchemy 2 thought of that and inserted it into the game is hilarious to me!
