Among the benefits of studying philosophy are the well-crafted tools it offers for approaching questions that we as human beings inevitably face—perhaps especially when we are called upon to make decisions about the direction of our lives. The responses we make to such questions are likely to be of great interest not just to ourselves but to our family members, our friends, and those with whom we work:

  • Who am I? What am I?
  • What can I do with my life?
  • What should I do with my life?
  • What considerations should I include as I assess proposed answers to such questions?
