18the EPI Symposium

Presenter: Dr. Walter Kohan

What is educational philosophy about? Why is philosophy relevant in Teacher Education?

There is an assumption, widely spread, that philosophy is a theoretical discipline that deals with abstract concepts. In this symposia we will try to show that this is true only of a certain tradition. But there are also others, one of which considers philosophy a very concrete exercise to put into question and think with others about the problems of our daily experience. How does this experience of philosophy look like when practiced in an educational setting? This the other question that will also be the focus of this symposium.
