Philosophy, Critical Thinking and Philosophy for Children
Daniel, Marie-France; Auriac, Emmanuelle
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v43 n5 p415-435 Jul 2011
For centuries, philosophy has been considered as an intellectual activity requiring complex cognitive skills and predispositions related to complex (or critical) thinking. The Philosophy for Children (P4C) approach aims at the development of critical thinking in pupils through philosophical dialogue. Some contest the introduction of P4C in the classroom, suggesting that the discussions it fosters are not philosophical in essence. In this text, we argue that P4C is philosophy.
