Philosophy for Children: Get Young Minds Racing!

Philosophy can be used to improve teaching and learning, for the lasting benefit of individuals and communities

Philosophy for Children / Communities aims to encourage children (or adults) to think critically, caringly, creatively and collaboratively.

It helps teachers to build a 'community of enquiry' where participants create and enquire into their own questions, and 'learn how to learn' in the process.

Matthew Lipman, creator of the philosophy for children movement, has died. Read this interesting article about him in the New York Times
