Venue: Newman House, 86 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2.
In light of the decision to include Philosophy as an optional subject in the Junior Cycle, the focus of the day will be exploratory and our shared goal is to inquire: How ought philosophy be taught and promoted within Irish schools? To this end, we are particularly interested in the role of the pedagogy Philosophy for Children (P4C) in fostering philosophical thinking among young people.
