Philosophy with Children as an Educational Platform for Self-Determined Learning
Kizel, Arie
Cogent Education, v3 n1 Article 1244026 2016
This article develops a theoretical framework for understanding the applicability and relevance of Philosophy with Children in and out of schools as a platform for self-determined learning in light of the developments of the past 40 years. Based on the philosophical writings of Matthew Lipman, the father of Philosophy for Children, and in particular his ideas regarding the search for meaning, it frames Philosophy with Children in six dimensions that contrast with classic classroom disciplinary learning, advocating a "pedagogy of searching" to replace the "pedagogy of fear" that dominates traditional learning systems.
