Astronist philosophy is the tradition of philosophy that has existed within Astronism and amongst Astronists since the belief system's inception and founding by Cometan in the early 21st century. Astronist philosophy, as a phrase, is also used to denote the identification of Astronism as an individual's personal belief system or philosophy of life. In academia, Astronist philosophy denotes an approach to philosophy from an Astronist perspective and the employment of philosophical methods to address Astronist issues and questions.

Astronist philosophy is classified as part of wider Astronic philosophy. Astronist philosophy is one of four branches of Astronism demarcated following the Great Elucidation, the other three being Astronist religion, Astronist spirituality and Astronist ideology.

Astronist philosophy is fundamentally concerned with all that is involved in the relationship between humanity and the astronomical world. Astronist philosophy seeks to understand and convey the various different means of interaction between humanity and the extraterrestrial as well as to comprehend the nature of human beings in relation to outer space in the context of the past, the present and the future.

Officially classified as an organised philosophy, Astronism is often described as either a philosophy or a religion, or as a hybrid of both, hence its designation as an organised philosophy. Astronist philosophy is credited having established the basis for cosmic philosophy, another form of philosophy within the Astronic tradition.

Astronist philosophy - equals cosmocentrism - that the astronomical world should be placed at the centre of one’s behaviour, ambition, and thoughts. This includes:

  • Astronomical word as a source of life purpose
  • Space exploration as humanity’s destiny
  • Transcension
  • Contributionism
  • Transhumanist school (through technology), Transcensionist school (through evolution)
