In the article the basic historical types such as myth, religion, art and science have been analyzed in order to clarify the issue of whether philosophy is a type of the worldview. For the first time the definition of the religion has been formulated by the author as a type of worldview aimed to maintain mental (spiritual) and physical health of the individual and society. Based on the comparative approach the author reveals particular characteristics of philosophy as a synthesis of historical types of the worldview. It was concluded that philosophy is not the type of the worldview; it is the science of life, that includes the worldview and the life experience altogether.
