What lessons or skills from philosophy do you use in your career?
As a law student, I use my skills from philosophy every day. I am able to read dense cases and draw more simple rules from them. Philosophy has also taught me critical thinking, which is important to understand the best strategy in law school and practicing law.
Do you have advice for current students or recent graduates about how to take advantage of and continue their philosophical education?
Take the most difficult courses, definitely take one of Tyler Burge’s classes if he’s still teaching. Keep all of your philosophy books!
