Kohan, Walter Omar; Costa Carvalho, Magda – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
In the world of Philosophy for Children (P4C), the word "method" is found frequently in its literature and in its practitioner's handbooks. This paper focuses on the idea of community of philosophical inquiry (CPI) as P4C's methodological framework for educational purposes, and evaluates that framework and those purposes in light of the…

Richardson, Michael J. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Theories about relationships impact the ways in which we imagine that teachers and students can or should interact. These theories often involve either individualistic or relational assumptions. A contrast has been made between theories that assume that the individual is primary, and the relationship secondary, and those that assume that the…

Kohan, Walter Omar – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper is an attempt to connect the Brazilian Paulo Freire's well known educational thinking with the "philosophy for children" movement. It considers the relationship between the creator of philosophy for children (P4C), Matthew Lipman and Freire through different attempts to establish a relationship between these two educators. The…

Jasinski, Igor; Lewis, Tyson E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
This paper reassesses a perennial concern of philosophy of education: the nature of the educational community and the role of the teacher in relation to such a community. As an entry point into this broader question, we turn to Philosophy for children (P4C), which has consistently emphasized the importance of community. Yet, not unlike pragmatist…

Välitalo, Riku; Juuso, Hannu; Sutinen, Ari – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
During the past 40 years, the Philosophy for Children movement has developed a dialogical framework for education that has inspired people both inside and outside academia. This article concentrates on analysing the historical development in general and then taking a more rigorous look at the recent discourse of the movement. The analysis proceeds…

Beauvais, Clémentine; Higham, Rupert – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
What does it mean for a child to fulfil his or her potential? This article explores the contexts and implications of the much-used concept of potential in educational discourses. We claim that many of the popular, political and educational uses of the term in relation to childhood have a problematic blind spot: interpersonality, and the necessary…

Shuffelton, Amy – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
This essay argues that philosophy can be combined with qualitative research without sacrificing the aims of either approach. Philosophers and qualitative researchers have articulated and supported the idea that human meaning-constructions are appropriately grasped through close attention to "consequences incurred in action," in…

Chen, Yi-Lin – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
The different sorts of virtuous people who display various virtues to a remarkable degree have brought the issue of individualisation of moral character to the forefront. It signals a more personal dimension of character development which is notoriously ignored in the current discourse on character education. The case is made that since in…

Burman, Erica – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
This paper critically evaluates the ways we look to children to educate us and explores how we might depart from that dynamic, exploring how a range of conceptual frameworks from historical and cultural studies and psychoanalysis might contribute to understanding the problematic of childhood, its problems and its limitations. While "child as…

Kohan, Walter Omar – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
This paper deals with two forms of education--Platonic and Socratic. The former educates childhood to transform it into what it ought to be. The latter does not form childhood, but makes education childlike. To unfold the philosophical and pedagogical dimensions of this opposition, the first part of the paper highlights the way in which philosophy…

Thomas, Alan; Pattison, Harriet – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Informal home education occurs without much that is generally considered essential for formal education--including curriculum, learning plans, assessments, age related targets or planned and deliberate teaching. Our research into families conducting this kind of education enables us to consider learning away from such imposed structures and to…

Wivestad, Stein M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Both in formal situations (as school teachers, football trainers, etc.) and in many, often unpredictable informal situations (both inside and outside institutions)--adults come close to children. Whether we intend it or not, we continually give them examples of what it is to live as a human being, and thereby we have a pedagogical responsibility.…

Frank, Jeff – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
This paper begins with a discussion of Stanley Cavell's philosophy of language learning. Young people learn more than the meaning of words when acquiring language: they learn about (the quality of) our form of life. If we--as early childhood educators--see language teaching as something like handing some inert thing to a child, then we unduly…

De Marzio, Darryl M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
In this paper I interpret Montaigne's essay, "On Educating Children", as a pedagogical text through its performance of a distinct epistolary function, one that addresses the letter-recipient for the purpose of shaping the ideas, actions, and beliefs of that individual. At the same time, I also read "On Educating Children" within the context of the…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
The present essay discusses the value of citizenship as shared fate in sites of ethnic conflict and analyzes its implications for citizenship education in light of three issues: first, the requirements of affective relationality in the notion of citizenship-as-shared fate; second, the tensions between the values of human rights and shared fate in…
