Subject: Philosophy in Schools
Boken er utgitt av Dr Michael Hand (University of London, UK) og Dr Carrie Winstanley (Roehampton University, UK). Philosophy in Schools består av en samling individuelle essays, som ut fra hver sine perspektiver argumenterer for inkludering av filosofi i skolens læreplaner. Fellesnevneren for bidragene er ønsket om å ta hull på myten om at filosofi er vanskelig eller abstrakt for barn. Bidrag fra bl.a. Gareth Matthews, Robert Fisher, Karen Murris og Stephen Law.

Key themes addressed include:

  • the role of philosophy in teaching controversial issues
  • the epistemological basis of critical thinking
  • the practice of conceptual analysis
  • philosophical thinking in moral and religious education
  • the idea of philosophical intelligence
  • philosophical themes in childrenís literature
  • philosophy and the adolescentís search for meaning
  • the connection between philosophy and wisdom
