  1. Of course, it's worth studying. By themselves, knowledge of various philosophical concepts, although not completely useless, is unlikely to be useful in life in its pure form. It is extremely rare for a situation to arise in which it would be appropriate to say something like: “But Nietzsche wrote this and that about this very thing.” Following the train of thought of some philosopher, you inevitably develop the ability to reason, which in the future will allow you to independently reason about something else. In addition, many practically useful disciplines are subsections of philosophy (logic, methodology).

    Of course, you should start with something simpler. Not hardcore like Heidegger or Wittgenstein. I would recommend starting with, say, Schopenhauer (“Aphorisms on Worldly Wisdom”) or Balthasar Gracian (“Pocket Oracle”). Although this is a full-fledged philosophy, such a softcore may well be perceived by an untrained person. If even this is not enough, then you can start with fiction with a high content of philosophical ideas.

  2. Philosophy studies the universal that is in everything. Not in the sense that it knows nothing but the universal; it also knows the particular and the singular. But it considers these particular and singular things in unity with the universal. And concrete manifestations of this universal are studied by specific sciences. Therefore, by studying philosophy, you will make it easier for yourself to study any other science.

    I recommend that you start learning about philosophy from this portal.

  3. With the basics of philosophy, of course.

    To begin with, get acquainted with the concept of philosophy by reading at least textbooks, and not fall on the first book you see,from which I think nothing will be clear to you.

    First of all, philosophy is self-knowledge.If you want to understand at least yourself, then I think you should.
