Consulting Kant

Philosophical life counselling

Kant can sort out your life!

Philosophy as the art of balancing your life: how can we apply the ideas and concepts of the great philosophers to help us resolve the problems life throws at us on a daily basis? This book presents four people who are suffering from loneliness, dissatisfaction, general anger or fear of the future, and are looking for direction and meaning in life. The author then illustrates solutions with the help of the teachings of important philosophers.

The philosophers are presented in chronological order with a short résumé of their lives and their key ideas, which are then applied to resolve the specific cases. In this way the reader is given an overview of philosophy’s major theories from antiquity to the current day.

The solution processes are clearly explained and offer a wealth of food for thought for mastering your own day-to-day life.
