Colloque

International Conference of Philosophy for/with Children “Philosophy for/with Children Inside and Outside of School”

28 octobre 2022 - 29 octobre 2022

Philosophy for/with Children (P4/wC) emerged in the 1970s as an educational program designed to encourage students to think for themselves. Through the efforts of philosophers and educators, P4/wC has spread to over 80 countries on all continents, being practiced at the moment both inside and outside of school. Suitably, new practices have developed, some continuing but others being quite different from the initial approach (Lipman et al.).
This conference is an invitation to reflect on how all those concerned with P4/wC do philosophy in the classroom and/or other environments. The main objective of the conference is to question the practices of philosophy with/for children inside and outside of school, regardless of whether philosophy has or does not have a place in the curriculum and whether teachers and parents encourage or discourage children to think for themselves.
The International Conference “Philosophy with/for Children inside and outside of school” will take place in Bucharest, Romania, on October 28 and 29, 2022, under the auspices of CIVIS.
