I am a philosophical practitioner from north Germany. I studied cultural sciences at the Dniversity of Lüneburg and got my PhD there at the Institute for philosophy in 2004. In 2005 I founded the Denkraeume, where I offer workshops and seminars to "translate" philosophical thoughts and methods to everyday life. I also work as a book-author and write for a philosophical magazine. I live with my husband and our three children in Reinbek, close to Hamburg.

15. The value of practicing

What is philosophy about? And what exactly does "philosophical practice" mean? What purpose or sense does thinking philosophically have? Who is the expert and how do we know?
