logoNAACI-picThe Community of Philosophical Inquiry and its diverse applications
NAACI International conference
Laval University, 
Québec, Canada, June 25-27, 2014.
The NAACI 2014 conference will examine the multifaceted, diverse applications of the Community of Philosophical Inquiry (CPI) in various settings. Since P4C’s beginnings, many fresh and original applications of the CPI have emerged: from prison-based and popular literacy programs to distance education and teacher training, from informal discussion groups in nursing homes and family care facilities to schools for children with exceptionalities, from religion and ethics education to health promotion and mathematics classes.
La conferencia de NAACI examinará las diversas aplicaciones dela Comunidad de Diálogo Filosófico (CDF) en varios contextos. Desde los comienzos de P4C han ido surgiendo una diversidad de aplicaciones originales: desde su aplicación en prisiones, casas de retiro y programas de formación de docentes a distancia hasta escuelas para niños con necesidades especiales, desde educación ética y religiosa hasta iniciativas para la promoción de la salud e incluso la enseñanza de matemáticas.
