Video Description

We all ask philosophical questions at some point in our lives - sometimes purposefully, sometimes accidentally. Philosophy teaches you how to think for yourself and how to analyze and communicate ideas clearly and logically. We sat down with Rabih Salloum to ask him about the career prospects for students who are drawn into Philosophy. 


Rabih grew up in Beirut before heading to Paris for college, where he mastered in Philosophy and Film Studies. Since 2014, he has been publishing short stories in various international publications (The Outpost, L’Orient-Le-Jour, Contributor Magazine, Bespoke, Gate37.) Always an advocate of multidisciplinary interests, Rabih also teaches Philosophy at the American University of Beirut, works in music and fashion, and owns a bar and a restaurant in the city.

He is currently polishing his first novel “The Fleeting Nature of Happiness.”
