There was a movement for a while where some philosophers were atempting to get licenced as "philosophical Counselors" much the same that a psychologist of physician gets licensed. Maybe the most famous poduct of this was the movie "I Heart Huckabee" which was good. Opponents said that this was mostly a scheme to just be a ble to charge $100 an hour to tell people about Aristotle. Proponents claimed that it seems foolish to ignore the substantial amount of thought philosophy has put into how to l ...more

Personalmente, nutro un'insana passione per tutto quello che non riesco a capire, non a caso ho da anni l'abbonamento a "Le scienze", e la filosofia rientra tra i grandi punti interrogativi della mia vita. Dal liceo in poi non ho mai smesso di leggere, cercare di capire, come mai il dialogo fine a se stesso riscuotesse questo grande successo e forse la risposta dell'angosciante quesito sta proprio nel sottotitolo di uno di questi due libri (quello del Prozac), che recita: Basta con le pillole, u ...more

In all honestly, I have a hard time with non-fiction because I put it down, pick it back up, put it down, takes me a while because there's no plot to follow! This was still a great read. I already knew much of the philosophy so it was sor t of a repeat but it was interesting how they aplied it to many different cases. The first half was most interesting while they were going over all the different types of philosophy, how it can be applied and how each would be used differently to go ab ...more

It was one of the best books i have ever read!Although i didn't like his arguments in specific subjects , i reccomend this book to everyone who is fond of philosophy but he doesn't like the difficult reading.4 stars for the dislikeable arguments.

I felt that this was a good introduction to many topics that you can approach with philosophy. I disagreed with some of the arguments the author poses and I feel that he puts an emphasis on Eastern Religion throughout the book. I would suggest reading this title if you want to spend time thinking about how philosophy can be used to approach different situations.

This book offers an amazing perspective on both mental health and philosophy. Though the end was not as enticing as the beginning, I really feel that this book came to me at the right time of my life. Anyone experiencing a quarter-life crisis or just feeling frustrated and ignorant will benefit from reading this book. Truly life changing.

very good book
Dagmar Cunningham
Interesting view of things, drawing from various philosophical directions. Everyday life case scenarios illustrate the authors therapy approach. Good quotes from Emerson,Ghandi, Freud, Buddha and Kant. It might give you explanations about how people operate.

Intresting book. Applying philosophy to everyday life helps understand the world better and in more depth and find a meaning to the things that happens to us and around us.

Remember -- “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional”

Kind of a beginner's guide to guilt, virtue, and philosophy.
Thought-provoking, but it certainly doesn't tackle the Big Issues quite the way a genuine wrestling with the philosophers does.

Brilliant so far. Takes philosophy beyond theory and shows how to apply the concepts to improve your life, relationships, and overall mental health.

It is a good philosophy book but the author tends to promote eastern philosophy over other options
