If you need to change the way you look to feel unique/important then I feel sad for you. All I need is practical, clean clothes at a fair price and I'm happy, no need for a huge tattoo on my back or a louis vuitton jacket to make myself feel special.

Why let people look how they want to? Everyone should be the same & wear polo-shirts..because polo-shirts are wholesome.
Obviously plastic surgery & tattoos lead to unemployment, look at all the people on television!
OH WAIT.

@ Gerry -
If that were the only measure of education, I would agree with you. And while that is the measure, for many people, I don't think it applies across the board. I think it's better to say that education is to instill to knowledge to allow you to pursue what you want to pursue. For most people, that's money. For [the smart, self-aware] philosophy grads, it's often something other than money. Similar things going on with many arts and humanities majors, there are other things they want to accomplish. They will never make a lot of money, but I don't think they're dumb for not caring, they just have different priorities.

But you're absolutely right, a degree is not intelligence. A philosophy degree, however, is just as likely to evince intelligence as any other degree; in fact, statistically, more likely than many.

I'm not claiming that a college education (in any subject) is ALL you need to do well in life. Not by any stretch. I just meant to say that, if we're singling out philosophy grads, in comparison specifically to other grads, to call THEM stupid for their particular choice in major is silly. Because compared to grads in other majors, philosophy grads perform well on a variety of measures of intelligence and critical thinking.

Does education = intelligence? Of course not. And I strongly agree about grads who get into the working world and have no clue how to work--grads from all disciplines. That's a sheltered-kids problem, though, not specifically a philosophy problem.

@Tsuryou- You're right, Philosophy majors DO think rather highly of themselves.

Tsuroyu

We have had plenty of uni sorts in my plant
very few survive because of the lack of knowing
what a real 8 hours toil is.
not even starting with the 12 hour 5 day a weeker
Ive had guys and gals coming in with god knows how many degrees, wanting to further the history of engineering, only to find these big ass Mori CNC's waiting for them. They have the theory
but when crap happens, like a thread miller welding in the billet, and you have 30 minutes or so to get it rolling again, they are lost. And usually dont come back, Im nay against uni life,
but you need to have the experience of REAL dirty hands reality. Thinking on your toes and ergo such things.

@ Tsuroyu - I would take you to task on your words "educated and intelligent". If the purpose of education is to instill the knowledge of how to fend for oneself, then it's a failure. Not many philosophy jobs pay well these day. As for "intelligent" who's smarter? The one with the sheep skin or the one who can actually bring home the bacon?

Do not confuse a degree with intelligence. I've interviewed many illeterate college graduates.

I love how people are like, "Ha, BA in philosophy, what an idiot," as if people with a degree in philosophy aren't highly educated and intelligent, and graduate with much better average critical thinking abilities than their colleagues in most other subjects. As if they don't average #1 for GRE scores, #1 for LSAT scores, and #4 for GMAT scores.

And don't give me that line about, "If they're so smart, why'd they pick a worthless major?" News flash: phil majors are well aware of the job prospects in their field, and not all life decisions are based on maximizing income.
