Mathematicians, economists, students of medicine, students of politics, students of physics, theologians, linguists, critics of literature and the arts – all these and more will encounter philosophical problems.
This is because philosophy characteristically raises questions about the basic assumptions of every form of human inquiry, having amongst its branches the philosophy of science, of religion, of psychology, of history, of law, of economics, and so on.
Those who want to be able to understand these problems when they face them, and ultimately get answers to them, will require at least a basic training in philosophy.
