What binds philosophy to science?

The word science has two basic meanings:
– a type of knowledge, a discipline that studies a particular subject;
– experimental science, a discipline that uses the experimental method for its research.
Clearly, philosophy is a science according to the first meaning, but there are Important links with experimental science:
The role, and accordingly the value, attributed to experimental science is a problem arose in the philosophical context.
The validity of the sciences in general is a philosophical question.
The experimental science today provides the largest contribution to the study of nature, which  is an essential part of philosophical research.
Once again it appears how the study of nature and its laws is the real key for understanding the phenomena, including cultural ones, that affect us, to be able to govern them to our advantage, and how disciplines considered distant like philosophy and science, have indeed very close connections, connections that are easily identifiable among the fumes of psychological pollution.
