A common sentiment among scientists is that they find nothing useful in philosophy. Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of those:
It seems like my friend Neil deGrasse Tyson  has done it again: he has dismissed philosophy as a useless enterprise, and actually advised bright students to stay away from it. It is not the first time Neil has done this sort of thing…
Neil’s comeback was: “That can really mess you up.” The host then added: “I always felt like maybe there was a little too much question asking in philosophy [of science]?” And here is the rest of the pertinent dialogue:
dGT: I agree.
interviewer: At a certain point it’s just futile.
dGT: Yeah, yeah, exactly, exactly. My concern here is that the philosophers believe they are actually asking deep questions about nature. And to the scientist it’s, what are you doing? Why are you concerning yourself with the meaning of meaning?
Tyson has a bit of a point: the reason that science was initially called Natural Philosophy was because that was where it grew out of. Before we had the intellectual tools (ie empricisim) to perform what we consider “science”, humanity used a lot of logical reasoning to learn about the world. Because it was the best we had! And sure, there are many places that we no longer use philosophy to learn about the world because we’ve got a lot of data. But there’s a lot of other things where we don’t have enough data! And we have to use our reasoning to figure things out. That’s called philosophy.
I was a philosophy major as an undergrad and though much of what I did was not ‘useful’ per se, it was pivotal in teaching me how to think. Personally, I would encourage any scientist to read more philosophy to improve the clarity of their thinking.
