On the possibility of self-transcendence: Philosophical counseling, zen, and the psychological perspective

Journal of Chinese Philosophy 23 (3):277-297 (1996)
This paper distinguishes between two conceptions of philosophical counseling. The one focuses on the clarification of the individual's psychological and philosophical self and the other on the transcendence of that self. A comparison of the latter conception with the self-transcendence that takes place through Zen Buddhism contributes to the examination of the question of whether philosophical counseling can indeed overcome potential psychological obstacles to attaining a transcendent aim. Possible influences of the integration of psychological intervention into the philosophical search for transcendence are also discussed
