Dejamos de otorgar un valor absoluto a lo que denominamos mi cuerpo, mis pensamientos, mis emociones, mis acciones, mi vida, mi persona He was one of the organisers of the fifth international conference on philosophy in practice held in Oxford in and edited the papers from that conference, published as Thinking through Dialogue Oxted, Practical Philosophy Press, He is working on an A to Z of ancient philosophers to be published in He is a regular visitor to Spain and in walked from Burgos to Finisterre.
The fact that he is not normally considered to be a philosopher is not a problem because I also argue that modern philosophical counselling can be seen as closely connected to what at least some of the sophists of antiquity did. This has implications for understanding the nature of philosophical counselling and the uses it makes of ancient philosophy. Antiphon achieved an extraordinary power of persuasion. Philostratus, Lives of the Philosophers. In this essay I will argue that Antiphon of Rhamnous was the first philosophical counsellor. Many will find this surprising for two main reasons.
First, Antiphon rarely, if ever, appears in the literature on philosophical counselling.

Secondly, few regard Antiphon as a philosopher at all. Nevertheless, I believe that my claim can be supported and that it has some implications that may be surprising. There were several people called Antiphon who made their mark in Athens during the fifth century BC. In later centuries there have been many disagreements concerning which person called Antiphon did what, and how many people called Antiphon there were.

The account I give of his life is therefore not the only possible one, but it is not intended to be controversial. Fortunately, as will be seen, only very few facts are relevant to my claim that he was the first philosophical counsellor and it is not really important for the purposes of this essay what else he did. He was born in around BC in Rhamnous, a fortified city on the coast to the north of Marathon. He may have studied with Gorgias of Leontini, and he certainly achieved fame as a writer of speeches and an authority on rhetoric.
He was also a teacher and the historian Thucydides was probably one of his students. According to Thucydides, Antiphon was widely distrusted for his cleverness, but his skills were eagerly sought out by those who needed them. In BC an oligarchic group seized power in Athens and Antiphon was one of them.

They were soon defeated and he was put on trial. After making an eloquent speech in his own defence, he was condemned to death. In his Memorabilia, Xenophon tells of a sophist called Antiphon who criticised Socrates for not taking enough interest in making money and he is probably talking about the same person. If so, then in addition to many speeches, Antiphon wrote several books. Clearly none of this is sufficient to justify the claim that Antiphon was the first philosophical counsellor. However a story was told about him that he spent some time in Corinth where he lived in a house near the centre of the city.
There he opened a business that claimed to be able to cure people s problems. Called the Pain and Suffering Clinic, the treatment it offered worked by means of words. Many think that this story is an invention of comic writers, but I am not so sure.

At the very least, satire only works when reality can be seen behind and through its distorting image, and so it seems extremely unlikely that the story has no connection whatsoever with the truth. Related to this story is another one, that Antiphon claimed to possess an Art of Avoiding Troubles. This Art seems to be the basis of the treatment offered at the Clinic. Even if some of the details of the story have been invented, I believe that its basic element, the idea that Antiphon claimed to possess some kind of Art of Avoiding Troubles, is probably true.
If that is the case, then the further idea of the Pain and Suffering Clinic suggests at least that he sought to make money from this Art, whether or not he opened a formal establishment with that name.

If the Clinic really is the invention of comic writers, then these seem to me to be the minimum facts required to make the idea of the Clinic funny. The obvious alternative is that the Clinic was not an invention at all, which I think is entirely possible although its name might be? The precise nature of Antiphon s Art is unclear.
The Greek word used to describe it is logoi, which can mean not only words but also reasons and arguments.

But whatever the precise interpretation or translation of logoi here, the obvious implication is that people came to Antiphon to talk through their problems. This seems to me to be sufficient to support the claim that he can certainly be regarded as a counsellor. Indeed, he may even have been If there had been, then it makes little sense to suppose that he would have been of interest to comic writers. It seems to have been the novelty of his occupation that people found funny. While there are many stories of presocratic philosophers offering advice of various kinds, that is very different from working with people on a one-to-one basis in return for payment.
Antiphon seems to have initiated this kind of activity. However, my main interest here is not with whether Antiphon was a counsellor, but more specifically with whether he was a philosophical counsellor. Here I want to introduce what may appear to be something of a paradox. The more likely it is that Antiphon was a sophist, the greater the reason for calling him the first philosophical counsellor.
The apparent paradox, which I hope is obvious, lies in the fact that the sophists have long been regarded as quite different from philosophers.
