How compatible is a double major between philosophy and one of the natural sciences?

Entirely! Philosophical training is an excellent complement to scientific training. Indeed, I wish more scientists had received it (see this response). The sciences abound with interesting questions for the philosopher.

A philosophy/science double major can be logistically challenging because of all the lab hours required by many science programs. But if you can make it work, I highly recommend it.
