Practical Philosophy (009-056)
One of the newest approaches to the knowledge of philosophy is practical philosophy. Perhaps the comparison of philosophy and mathematics in this position is truly comparative. Mathematics is a purely theoretical subject. Although mathematics was initially fully functional, it was more than ever guided to the point where it attempted to take logical scrutiny seriously.
In the early days of mathematics, it most of all completed the tasks that engineering has to offer today. With the emergence of pure mathematics, applied mathematics became profitable and since it was called functional, it could be used in one branch of applied science.
Philosophy is already heading in this direction. Philosophy was initially applied in ancient Greece and was used on a daily basis, but as in the above example, its study was taken seriously. Here it took a pure form and was studied only in the library and by experts; it was separated from daily life.
In this day and age, philosophy is now flourishing. This type of philosophy in particular shows itself in the discussion of therapeutic philosophical counseling. Currently, in the progressive countries of the world, there are those who offer therapeutic philosophical counseling to individuals and organizations in exchange for financial support. Regardless of the discourse exchanges between advisers and their helpers in these fields, the very act itself is becoming more and more lucrative.
All of the sciences were born out of philosophy and have become applied to life, so why not add practical philosophy to our lives today?
