Why read ‘philosophy’?

To better understand what’s going on around us, to find out what the ‘great minds’ had to say about the world in general or to be able to make ‘intelligent conversation’ in certain circles?

Why share our thoughts?

To measure them against what others have to say about the same subjects or as a ‘desperate attempt’ to change the world? (Supposedly for the better, of course! But then again, better for whom? Better than what?
And what do you mean by ‘better’, anyway?
