Albert Hoffmann

Albert Hoffmann

My name is Albert Hoffmann. I was born in Prague (Czech Republic), and studied philosophy at the University of Zürich. For about five years I was organizing philosophical discussions with retired people under the roof of SAV (Stiftung Alterswohnungen der Stadt Zürich / Foundation apartments for elders in the city of Zürich). In the past ten years I have been hosting a Café-Philo in Zürich. Since 2013 I have my own philosophical practice. (www.sophonautik.ch)

Philosophical practice for me is not a therapy, even though people who ask for this service, have, for sure, felt some sort of lack. They have been, in one way or another, uncomfortable with their situation, or otherwise they wouldn’t be ready to pay money to someone just because he or she is talking to them. The really hard thing is to make them understand why spend time with philosophy, if, as I think, this activity could be advertised with a slogan like: “Is your life too simple? - I will make it complicated!”
