Why is it when things go awry, or not our way, or we are unhappy, we (as a society) schedule our already-busy selves in with a psychologist, a psychiatrist, a counselor?  Or, if we are of a religious nature, a priest or other spiritual leader?  Why not see a philosopher?

I am going to make an appointment with a philosopher, I think, if he is not too busy climbing the mountain of enlightenment.
