PHIL 265 Engaged Philosophical Inquiry as a Way of Life




In this age of divisiveness, conflict and tension that increasingly pervades everyday life, it is difficult to engage in genuine dialogue across difference with an open mind and a charitable attitude. This course is designed to nurture the courage and the skills to do just that. This course will use Philosophy for Children (P4C) – a UNESCO recognized dialogical, inquiry-based way of teaching and learning that encourages students to think together critically, creatively, and cooperatively – as the background framework. Students will also have the opportunity to engage in traditional Indigenous circles and so have the opportunity to reflect on what these traditional ways have to teach.
