Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
philosophy teaches a set of arguing skills

That sounds British, based on what may loosely be called Oxford Philosophy, that concerns itself with epistemology and the uses of logic. There are other ways of approaching philosophy. French philosophers, for example, are much more likely to concern themselves with the human condition and ethical questions, and to speak or write comprehensibly (and maybe usefully) about them.
