Why Study Philosophy
Philosophy investigates general topics of human interest including morality and the good life; law and the political life; good and bad reasoning; the nature of the mind, reality in general, evidence, the sacred or divine, language, art, and the beautiful.
Studying philosophy requires learning how to listen and how to discuss. It involves sifting through ideas and articulating thoughts in ways that others can follow. It is little wonder, therefore, that a degree in philosophy is not only valuable in itself, but is also widely recognized as an excellent preparation for careers in law, academia, medicine, and even business.
