This episode from NPR’s series This I Believe provides one of the best justifications for studying philosophy that I have heard.

Journalist Yvette Doss describes how philosophy gave her permission to think in ways that enabled her to overcome her underpriveleged circumstances. She closes with the observation that “Logic makes equals of us all”.

Give it a listen.
