Philosophy Practice : An Alternative to Counseling and PsychotherapyPhilosophy Practice : An Alternative to Counseling and Psychotherapy by Shlomit C. Schuster

Although philosophy has become a purely academic discipline over the last few centuries, it once played an important role in the politics of  many Western nations. Now, the end of the 20th century, philosophy seems to be returning to its original, practical purposes, thanks to the new practice of philosophical counseling, which is now emerging as an alternative to psychoanalysis and other clinical approaches. This volume describes the main theoretical aspects of this practice based on an open-ended dialogue between a philosophical practitioner and a client or a group, and places it in a historical context, while contrasting it with various forms of psychological counseling. To illustrate how philosophy can be beneficial, the author, a practicing philosophical counselor, also presents several case studies from her own practice. 

About the Author

Dr. Shlomit C. Schuster is a practicing philosophical counselor. She has many years of experience in conducting private sessions in counseling and in instructing philosophers who want to begin their own counseling practice. She can be reached at

Pathfinder for Sources in Duke Libraries

This list of sources is intended to jumpstart research on the women's movements of the 1960s and 1970s. It is not a comprehensive bibliography, nor is it all inclusive. There are many other publications, individuals, and organizations involved in movement activities than those listed here. While this pathfinder is written to work specifically in Duke University libraries, citations and names, etc. may still be helpful to those using other libraries. 


Women's Liberation Research Network

The Women's Liberation Research Network is a group of students, teachers, activists, librarians, and archivists who have an interest in some aspect of the U.S. Women's Liberation Movement. The idea of a network came out of a panel at the 1996 Berkshires conference where it became clear that there was widespread interest in this era as a research topic, yet many of us did not know who was doing what.

The purpose of this network is to provide simple connective tissue among those researching, writing, teaching, and collecting in the hopes that we can provide a a better, more accurate understanding of this period in history.

Women's Studies Program at VillanovaWomen's Studies at Villanova University

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program providing courses and a minor and a concentration in Women's Studies. It is open to students in all degree programs.

Identifying gender as fundamental to the way that men and women understand themselves, Women's Studies focuses on the position of women and, thus, causes us to rethink history and culture. The academic discipline of Women Studies continues to transform scholarship and basic assumptions in all areas of the humanities, social sciences, and the professions.

Courses in Women's Studies address the history and achievement of women and analyze the implications of gender roles in the past and present. Courses consider such topics and the social and cultural consequences for both women and men of gender divisions and sex-role restrictions. They ask such questions as: To what extent are gender divisions in society biologically determined, and to what extent are they social constructions? How has the subordination of women been a factor in the formation of legal and economic systems around the world? In what ways can such disciplines as Philosophy, Literature, and Religious Studies change once women become active participants and creators? What is the significance of gender in the formation of systems of thought and the symbols we use?
