But it is not very difficult. It’s easier than calculus and a lot easier than physics.
Philosophy is all about books, books, books.
An enormous amount of the most important philosophy books you can read are public domain and therefore (legally) free. If you want to build a library on a budget, philosophy is the way to go.
Philosophy is about ideas.
Philosophy isn’t just about old ideas
Philosophy isn’t just about new ideas
A good philosophical education will give you a foundation in literature
and much more.
Philosophy is one of the few subjects that will actually affect how you watch movies like The Matrix, Star Wars, Inception, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and lots of others (if you want to learn how to interpret movies well, skip the film degree and do philosophy).
Aside from theology, philosophy boasts the richest contributions from Christians.
Within philosophy you can study a mind-boggling number of topics and traditions, like epistemology (how do we know things?), ethics (what is right and wrong?), metaphysics (is there a God?), linguistics (what do our words mean?), aesthetics (what makes something beautiful?), philosophy of history (what does it all mean?), philosophy of science (is science really worth anything?), etc.
