Women in Philosophical Counseling : The Anima of Thought in Action, Hardback Book

Women in Philosophical Counseling : The Anima of Thought in Action Hardback

Edited by Luisa de Paula, Peter B. Raabe


With contributions from eighteen professional women counselors from twelve different countries, this book is the first to provide an overview of new-born philosophical practices from an entirely female perspective.

It gives voice to women's thoughts and brings to the reader a living portrait of philosophy as a service to people and a training for those in search of a fully lived existence.

As the authors draw on first-hand experience, their philosophical analyses intertwine with changes in attitudes and real-life stories, unearthing that forgotten soul of philosophical thought which our ancestors referred to as the Anima.

The book provides a lively, sprightly and vivacious picture of how philosophy is used in practice, a long way from the rigidness and stereotypical severity of its traditional image.

It will not fail to inspire readers to live their thoughts and think their lives.
