Philosophy Is Always Behind Physics.

Because philosophy is just somebody's opinion and physics is laws of nature (which are actually mathematical laws). Usually philosopher tries to generalize scientific discoveries and methods to entire universe.

Philosopher, physicist and mathematician see a black sheep.

'All sheeps are black' - immediately says philosopher.
'There are sheeps and some of them are black' - says physicist.
'There is at least one sheep, and at least half of it is black' - says mathematician.

Here is another good joke about physics, math and philosophy:

Professor of physics comes to his dean and says: 'I need a million dollars to build an experimental set'

Dean replies: 'Why can't you physicists be like folks from math department - all they need is pen, paper and a waste basket?'

Professor corrects: 'Do you mean philosophy department folks - they don't even need a waste basket?'
