Philosophy for children (Master thesis)

Αποστόλου, Βασιλική

Philosophy for Children is a relatively new discipline that emerged in 1970 in America. Its originality is that it faces the introduction of the philosophic course in Primary Education not only as feasible but also as very profitable for students and teachers. As it is argued, children -students are able to successfully meet the goals and requirements of the philosophic course, which is designed to respond as much to their age as to their mental structures. However, the opposite of this program are those who argue that children, especially in the first classes of elementary school, are not capable of complex or abstract thinking, skills that are required for philosophical search. This paper critically reviews this discussion and shows the conditions by which the Philosophy for Children discipline can work to transform the classroom into a community of inquiry using philosophical dialogue, changing the role of the teacher, the written texts, as well as the curriculum.
