Publicly Engaged Philosophy: A Dispatch (guest post by Jennifer Morton) - Daily Nous https://t.co/YaF39lpuZw What can the public add to philosophy?
Children need practice at thinking, just like everything else and the facilitator models for them and leads them into a wide variety of its forms. Quite frankly these sessions are clearly so empowering for them that at least once in every single one I find myself wondering why on earth this type of education is not occurring simultaneously in every school in the country.
