Order online at Amazon.co.uk

This book presents a clear introduction to the theory and Book coverpractice of the Community of Philosophical Enquiry (P4C) and explains how P4C can facilitate young people's exploration of the key ethical questions of our time, such as intercultural understanding and education for sustainable development. It offers educationalists an opportunity to reflect on how philosophical thinking in young adults can support their development into confident individuals who are successful learners and responsible citizens, and discusses the relevance of this process to educational needs of the 21st Century.

Additionally, the book gives practical examples for all practitioners wanting to develop philosophical thinking in their context, and to particularly help teachers implement the new curriculum demands in inspirational ways. The book will be of interest not only to a wide range of secondary teachers but also teacher educators at university level and also policy makers. It could be important for those working in the voluntary sector, for example, with concern for development and environment education. It will be of interest to parents and those in professions closely aligned to teaching such as social or youth work.
