Abstract

Having been invented in ancient Greece especially as a way of coping with, and even gaining advantage of, personal and collective crises faced by people, philosophical counselling seen as phronesis – practical wisdom – has been relaunched four decades ago under the need of philosophy to retrieve, in modern form, its original social utility. The current pandemic represents a time of multiple distress and unease that philosophy under the diverse facets of its counselling potential, is fully capable of addressing in complementarity with other forms of help.
