In ספר דרך חכמה the רמח"ל says one should learn everything, from beginning to end: Tanach, Mishna, Talmud etc.

But in מסילת ישרים he says (פרטי הנקיות) you can't be a good person if you don't know what to do, so you should learn Halakhah and mussar before anything. It seems to be in contradiction to what he advised in דרך חכמה. Unless in דרך חכמה he's taking as a given that the person being advised already learned, and learns, Halakhah and Mussar.

(האם הרמח"ל אולי אפילו חולק על חכמים כמו הרמב"ם שסוברים שאין בלימוד התורה שבעל פה חובה)
