Philosophy is a fascinating subject - the name means the love of wisdom, from the Greek roots. And the love of wisdom is shared by any deep-thinking individual throughout the ages, from the ancient Greeks onwards to the present day.
Whilst it may seem irrelevant to the modern world, philosophy is going through something of a revival of late, with booming departments at lots of universities meaning it is no longer so much of a niche subject.
It teaches you the art of thinking, logic, examining arguments, thinking about the key questions such as 'how should I live my life?' - there is not much more important than that.
