In this handbook 34 renowned philosophical practitioners, from 20 different countries, present a great variety of dialogue methods for philosophical practice, which never before have been published in such a compact and compiled form. By having Socrates and his method of maieutics – the art of midwifery of the soul as he called it – as one of its main sources of inspiration, this publication intends to offer different methodological approaches in order to make people wonder, reflect, change perspective, to think different. In short: to make people philosophize – about life, the way they live it, and give inspiration on the way towards how they think they should.
