So, the other day I agreed to give a talk in October on the question, ‘Why Philosophy?’ This is, of course, something I’ve thought about in the past. But I’ve never strictly delineated an answer to myself, to the extent that I could at this very moment deliver a clear and confident paper on the topic. I thought it might be interesting to, in a sense, ‘crowdsource’ my talk. In the interest of doing so, I’d love to hear from readers about why they think philosophy is a necessary, or at least worthwhile, pursuit. Of course, the risk of cliche and redundancy looms large here. If you have some thoughts, whatever they may be, please pass them along.
