Chris Phillips, the peripatetic teacher of philosophy for children, returns to the Takoma Park Maryland Library on Wednesday, August 4, at 7:30 p.m. (following the 7 pm story time led by Tina Hudak). Phillips will lead adults and children ages 8 and up in an evening of philosophical discussion using the elenctic, or indirect mode of inquiry, that Socrates used.
Chris and his wife Cecilia have visited the Takoma Park Maryland Library on many occasions to lead these discussions. Each time there has been a new crowd with no way to anticipate which way the discussion will go! But each adventure into philosophical inquiry has been fascinating.
Information about the Society for Philosophical Inquiry (SPI) , founded by Chris and Cecilia Phillips, and the associated gatherings for philosophical discussions, can be found at www.philosopher.org.Posted by at July 20, 2004 06:06 PM
