Perhaps the greatest benefit of studying philosophy is the satisfaction that comes from thinking clearly on fundamental issues. This makes the study of philosophy its own reward. However there are also other reasons for studying philosophy. Philosophy provides knowledge of our intellectual heritage, and of major issues concerning the nature of ourselves and the world.

Studying philosophy will help you to develop your powers of constructive, creative and critical reasoning. It will also help you to express yourself more clearly, and give you the ability to address complex and difficult problems. Plus, the skills and knowledge you will gain from studying philosophy will help you to be a better student in other subjects. And your skills and knowledge will be directly relevant, and transferable, to almost every walk of intellectual and practical life.
