我知道「talk about + 名詞」就是「談論」的意思，
該怎麼使用「talk + 名詞」，
例如：The young people were talking philosophy in Clay's study.

The difference between "talk" and "talk about" is "talk about" is more specific than "talk". For example:
Let us talk.
Let us talk about this trip.

"Let us talk" means "there is NOTHING specific to talk about"
However, "let us talk about this trip" means "we talk specifically about this trip".

in your questioned sentence: "... talk philosophy...", philosophy has a very wide range of knowledge. However, in your questioned sentence, it DID say " ... in Clay's study".

It becomes very specific, so it is better to use
The young people were talking about philosophy in Clay's study.
