Philosophy is very important in a lot of areas, and it has shaped so much of the world we live in today, and the world we will live in tomorrow.

In my Computer Science university course there was a huge overlap in materials from what I covered in two philosophy modules, a neuroscience module, a biocomputing module, an intelligent systems module, and an image processing module.

Much of the technological advancement we're seeing at the moment in fields such as facial, voice, and handwriting recognition, to just plain better search algorithms at Google, and Netflix's suggested movies feature, all stems from ideas covered in philosophical concepts such as philosophy of mind and intelligence.

I'd imagine that philosophy holds great importance in other STEM fields, as well as social sciences like economics and political science,
