Philosophy is one of my choices as a course before entering college. I am somehow inspired to take this course for I wanted to follow the footsteps of my idol, Senator Miriem Defensor-Santiago who is a product of this course. I really admire the way she renders her opinion on things. I also am amazed of how he stand her grip on her principles and that being guided by her philosophy in life. I really love her. But somehow, I ended up taking Political science as my course. My parents wanted me to be a Lawyer someday. But still, I have no regrets with it. I think I am destined to take that after all. Maybe, when the time comes, I will let my daughter take Philosophy then, so that she'll continue my dreams. lol. Honestly, I am happy now with my course. Sooner I'll graduate and with that I'll be a good lawyer someday, hopefully and I will definitely make my own Philosophy that will surely rock the world :)

I think your parent's choice of course for you is excellent. If you really love Philosophy then being a lawyer is just a means to exercise your love for it. You can still study philosophy even if you've already become a lawyer. It is your stepping stone for success.

"Philosophy" (in school) isn't much more than 'remembering who said what important things.' But political science---that's the path to the keys of power! And when you have the keys of power, you can write the World's Philosophy any way you want to!

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well that is your greatness that u took up Political science knowing the fact that philosophy was the one u wanted to foray and do not want to disappoint your parents. I know u must be feeling bad at heart but u should remember the fact that if u have sacrificed something in life then u will get many happiness in life which will come unheard. I am sure u will become a successful lawyer and will still have good ethos and principles in your life. What say?
