Philosophy Because the World Matters
Reeve, Hester
Teaching Artist Journal, v15 n3-4 p169-173 2017
"Philosophy Because the World Matters" promotes a valorization of philosophy as a practice able to activate an individual's relationship making to "having a life" and, in turn, to allow the unfolding self-illumination (qua onto-ethical capacity) to effect a constructive world-thinking and hence world-building with others. These education-based workshops with recovering addicts at Her Majesty's Prison Lancaster Castle, UK were influenced by my experience of David Bohm's "Dialogue" and my interest in Paulo Freire's notion of "critical consciousness." I made a drawing after most sessions, copies of which were distributed to participants to enable further reflection and to honor their discoveries.
