Toward an alternative business model for philosophical counseling

I’m giving a talk this afternoon at the APPA Annual Meeting just up the road at Columbia. The talk’s entitled “Toward an Alternative Business Model for Philosophical Counseling.” (Very catchy!) I’ll be arguing

  1. We’re living through a historical transition the result of which is that our old ways of life are inherently unworkable.
  2. At the moment, philosophy is a life need yet, in the public imagination, it is sorely misunderstood.
  3. Leading an exemplary life is the key to establishing and running a viable philosophical counseling business.
