I would implore all scientists, particularly physicists, to read this article from +Scientific American. Written by a physicist/philosopher, a mathematician, and a philosopher, it is the best I have read on the topic of physics vs philosophy to date.

The claim made by far too many prominent scientists — that philosophy is dead — even as they unknowingly engage in philosophy, is a far flung, overreaching generalization that is simply incorrect. (Although admittedly this might be the case for cosmological metaphysics, as mentioned in the article.)

Coming from a background heavy in applied mathematics and science, I love these subjects. But also having discovered the vast field of philosophy later in life, I am strongly of the opinion that these three subject areas together form the foundation of human endeavor and achievement. And I would very much like to see a revival of philosophical training as a part of college curriculums for this reason. After all, isn't the ability to reason and think critically of tremendous importance to these fields?
