Why? Philosophical Discussions About Everyday Life: "Plato Not Prozac: What is Philosophical Counseling?"

Can philosophy make our lives better? Can it help us develop better senses of self? Can it ever be used as a therapy-like tool to heal us psychologically or inspire us to change our behavior? In this episode of Why? we will look at the role of belief, worldview, and intellectual choices, to see how they contribute to a healthy, well-balanced personality.

Lou Marinoff is Professor of Philosophy at City College of New York, and founding President of the American Philosophical Practitioners Association (APPA).
