- Client Counselors
offer philosophical counseling, one-on-one, for a range
of problems or issues involving morals, values, meaning
and purpose. Some counselors specialize in particular
methods or perspectives, while others are more general
in their practices.
- Group Facilitators
often moderate philosopher's cafes for large public groups,
and conduct Socratic Dialogues--an experience in living
philosophy--for small private ones. Some facilitators
have developed other unique approaches to working philosophically
- Organizational Consultants
utilize a range of skills and techniques--from Socratic
Dialogue to Dilemma Training to Pragmatism--for enhancing
ethics and ethos in the workplace. A virtuous workforce
is more functional (and profitable) than a vicious one.
