Why study philosophy?

Shouldn’t I be taking business courses so I can get a job? Or computer science?

But philosophy? Isn’t that for dead Greeks?

I want to be prepared for employment when I finish college, and not end up a cab driver or a beer slinger!

  1. When I was an undergrad, I took a class one summer at Chicago’s Roosevelt University: “Psychology of Business.” I was working on a B.S. in Education, and later I realized that the Roosevelt course could have been called “Psychology of Education,” because it was helpful in my chosen field. I believe it was also helpful years later, when I changed my profession.

    • OOPS!!! I meant “Philosophy of Business” and “Philosophy of Education.” Maybe there’s a connection between philosophy and psychology? LOL
