Philosophy was originally understood and regarded as a way of life. As such, philosophers of old endeavored to train people in Philosophy for it to be able to affect the way that they lived. Ironically, over the centuries, Philosophy became more and more confined within the hollowed walls of monasteries, convents, and universities.
The 21st century, however, saw a change in this dynamic. Individuals with backgrounds in philosophy have gradually influenced various areas, such as, politics, business, education, law, medicine, and information technology, among others, and they credit their philosophy education as one of the defining factors of their success. Thus, philosophy is starting to become an increasingly popular choice among students who are trying to decide on a major to pursue.
Given this, the predominantly theoretical discipline of philosophy has become in demand in the world of practice. As such, applied philosophy, the branch of philosophy where theory meets practice, has undeniably become relevant.
