My son is considering majoring in Philosophy. Seriously. I am at a loss for words. I asked what he intends to do with a degree in philosophy...he isn't sure. He just knows he finds it very interesting. Great.
This is my analytical kid. He is walking, talking logic. Black & White...grey does not exist in his world. His mind is amazing. He can talk anyone in circles, he is a master manipulator...and a knowledgeable one. I can understand why he loves philosophy.... but he excels in math & science. His dream for years was to study mechanical engineering. Then he decided on Computer Sciences....now Philosophy? What??
I have suggested minoring in Philosophy. Evidently, it isn't available in a minor. I have asked him to look into career options related to philosophy, as I can't imagine him teaching. I am worried how he will support himself with such a degree.
Help? Anyone? Please?
