CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

The vocational value of philosophy depends on its connection with other fields. For example, formal logic is close to mathematics; ethics is important for medicine, business, teaching, and counseling; legal and political philosophy are essential to law and public service; philosophy of science has a bearing on the social and natural sciences; and aesthetics and the history of philosophy are useful to students in literature and the arts.
