I really hope I'm not too late to the party.
Hello, Prof Grayling! I'm an American 18 year old looking to perhaps study philosophy and sciences during my college years. While I adore philosophy and consequently most of this AMA, I'm a bit concerned about how one would make a living as a graduate of philosophy. Going into my college career, I currently consider philosophy my intended minor with a major in astronomy and astrophysics, but as you could imagine, I would ideally major in philosophy if I could find my way fiscally.
And so my question to you is: How did you do it? You're obviously successful, and you get to live my dream to boot. I'm just trying to get a general idea as to how I'm supposed to blaze a trail for myself in this seemingly unstable field of study. Thanks in advance!

My biggest thanks for your response!
Given your experience, I'm certain that a degree in philosophy would greatly assist me in a career in public education of sciences. Even if I were to decide on a different pursuit, you're right in advocating the general usefulness of such a degree.
I'll get back to my homework and debate viewing now. Thanks again!
