Ponder the biggest questions
What is the meaning of life? This might be the holy grail of questions – and people have been trying to answer it for centuries. Philosophy is the practice of asking and answering our most enduring and essential questions. In between the asking and answering, though, we challenge thought. Aristotle said, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
So, where does all this thought lead? Wherever you like. Maybe you’d like to continue school, earn more advanced degrees and teach. Maybe you’re looking to law school or medical school – philosophy gets you ready to answer the tough questions these careers require. Regardless of where you go next, you’ll learn critical thinking skills that will help you succeed in any career you choose.
