What Is Philosophy for Children? From an Educational Experiment to Experimental Education
Vansieleghem, Nancy
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n11 p1300-1310 2014
Philosophy seems to have gained solid ground in the hearts and minds of educational researchers and practitioners. We critique Philosophy for Children as an experimental programme aimed at improving children's thinking capacity, by questioning the concept of critique itself. What does it mean when an institutional framework like the school claims to question its own framework, and what is the consequence of such a claim for thinking, in education, philosophy and the child? Implications for the concept of critical thinking follow.
