I love her response to the complaint by the guild of psychologists:
Dr. Guiseppe Luigi Palma said the use of a consulting philosopher was "not only misleading and confusing, but utterly perilous". He said his organisation was ready to take "all the most appropriate actions to combat any offence that may be identified".
to which the reply was
But "the work is not on the emotions, but about ideas," said Lupo. "I don't think the college of psychologists knows what a philosophical consultant is." And being a philosophical consultant, she added: "Their criticism is in any case devoid of epistemological content."
I can think of plenty of people who could profitably spend a little time in such discussions, but not that many who'd actually do it.
Novelty would bring a few people by, but I can't imagine very many people making the pilgrimage to the office, even if it was at a restaurant. I could be wrong: I gather pastors do a lot of counseling and some of that is bound to be big-picture stuff.
What sort of town atmosphere lends itself to philosophical discussion? A lot of what I eavesdrop on at the sidewalk tables turns out to be business or politics. Perhaps asking the important "why" questions makes people feel too vulnerable, and the rigor of logic doesn't seem very popular (especially in politics).
Now an on-call philosopher who you could ring up from a 1am college dorm bull session about the meaning of the universe--he might get some business.
