ACPC Austrian Centre of Philosophy with Children, Karl-Franzens-University Graz/Austria
Conference languages: English and German, Dates: October 16th-19th.
Kritisches Denken basiert auf sich gegenseitig rasch erweiternden Kriterien, um ausgeprägte Maßstäbe an Urteilsfähigkeit und Selbstreflexion zu erreichen. Der Kongress setzt sich zum Ziel, diese Voraussetzungen und Fähigkeiten Kritischen Denkens gemäß jener sozialen, medialen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Anforderungen neu zu bestimmen, mit denen junge Menschen heute in ihren Lebens-, Lern- und Arbeitswelten unausweichlich konfrontiert sind. Ziel ist es, neue Bedeutungen zu finden, um Grundlagen für die Verbesserung des Orientierungswissens junger Menschen bereitstellen zu können. weitere Informationen
Based on current debates in cultural, social and educational policy, The International Conference for Philosophy for Children, 2014, will focus on the existing and potential relationships between knowledge and responsibility and on our understanding of the role critical thinking plays within this relationship.  What does critical thinking actually mean? Where does knowledge come from? Is knowledge linked to responsibility? For full desciption of conference themes click here ACPC-2014Conference_english.
