This question already has an answer here:
What are the practical ramifications of philosophy & How can we make it relevant to ordinary people.
Philosophy is seen by many as a useless subject and a mere waste of resources.
Countless degree programs in philosophy have been retired by universities the world over because of this.
So my question is How is philosophy useful? What are the practical of philosophy to the day to day lives of ordinary people? What is the usefulness of philosophy to the plumber, to the engineer & scientists? Is philosophy all talk, talk & talk with no action? Is philosophy really necessary? What type of jobs do philosophers do with a degree in philosophy other than become lecturers & teach other students who will become lecturers & the cycle goes on.
