On Philosophical Practice

Philosophical practice is gradually becoming a recognized branch of philosophical disciplines. In many countries associations of philosophical practitioners are created, and the number of clients using such services increases. If we take advantage of the statement of the pioneer of philosophical practice, Gerd B. Achenbach, a philosophical practicioner is a specialist in a non-speciality: his visitor is understood not as an example of any theoretical construct, but as absolutely unique human being. A feature of philosophical practice, in contrast to academic philosophy, is that it should be guided by the problems that are relevant according to the state of the client. The philosophical practice is based on the ontological principles of existential philosophy which allow for the deepest impact in the structure of the person. On the other side, this practice requires the usage of philosophical categories, through which the client realizes his worldview problems.


Key Words: philosophical practice, theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, orality, literacy
