Philosophical consulting comes in many shapes & sizes. In many cases, philosophical consultants are brought on board for insight & perspective about ethical matters related to such things as end-of-life issues, environmental concerns, legal conundrums, or civic-based quandries. In such scenarios, a philosophical consultant might be asked: “how do we provide care to individuals in a way that honors dignity and autonomy?,” “should we be concerned with gmo’s and why?,” “what sorts of rights should to be extended to individuals who have broken the law and been convicted & why?,” and “what might a viable public transport system look like in terms of meeting the needs of a community?” Philosophical consultation in this capacity is typically referred to as ‘ethical consultation’ and generally involves an individual or group hiring a consultant to provide expert insight/guidance about some sort of ethics-related matter at hand.
Another important type of philosophical consultation to consider is consultation that occurs within a therapeutic setting. In this context, philosophical consultants serve as philosophical practitioners in the field of philosophical counseling and help clients deal with a myriad of challenges related to problems of living (e.g., values disagreements, career issues, retirement, time-management).
