ABSTRACT

The philosophical therapy helps clients have a abilities to maintain the balance of thinking by themselves. In order to maintain the balanced condition of thinking, the reason and emotion should be balanced. The balanced condition of thinking is important because it is the matter of how to understand, cognize, and accept oneself, others, and the surrounding world. When judging or deciding something, it would be necessary to consider diverse variables like the meaning of the judgment or decision and its influence on oneself, others, and social community. Here, it is related with the world view on identity, life, daily life, others, and society. The Investigation of Things and Extension of Knowledge provides a method to reveal the fundamental reasons why such fixed & conceptualized behaviors create pathological problems, and then to seek for the possibility of healing. The Investigation of Things and Extension of Knowledge is associated with the relation, transformation, continuance, and solution such as how to understand/accept the surrounding world and others in daily life, and also how to live. The Investigation of Things and Extension of Knowledge is to form the direction and order of life by thinking about everything composing the world like world, essence of being, morality, and ethics. As self-awareness and discernment can be done while observing oneself through the Investigation of Things and Extension of Knowledge, it could work as a method of philosophical therapy.
