How can philosophy be relevant to your life? This book contains twenty-five papers providing a variety of answers to this question. They describe how philosophy may be the basis for counselling, organisational development, and dialogues with children. They present philosophical perspectives on psychotherapy and on key life issues that may arise in counselling or psychotherapy. Above all, this book covers recent developments in philosophical counselling, which is also known as philosophical practice. Philosophical practice involves the stimulation of philosophical reflection through the process of dialogue. By means of dialogue, people can achieve greater philosophical awareness in order to help them find answers to life's problems. A knowledge of what is happening in this area will benefit both philosophers and those who have not yet discovered their philosophical talents. Apart from students and academic philosophers wanting to keep up with developments in this area, the book also has much to offer teachers, counsellors, psychotherapists and organisational consultants. Through the medium of philosophical counselling, philosophy reaches out to make contact with a variety of other disciplines and professions.
