La Philo aux enfants : Favoriser le développement d'un esprit critique chez les enfants. A propos du projet Éditer Depuis le début de l'année scolaires 2012, les enfants de la classe de CM2 (dernière année primaire) de l'école du Petit Paris de Brest (quartier Saint Marc) ont la chance d'avoir des cours de philosophie dans leur classe ! Pourquoi ? Tout au long de l'année, les phrases prononcées par les enfants sont glanées, collectées et conservées précieusement .. pour en faire une pièce de théâtre ! Ce projet s'inscrit dans une démarche plus globale portée notamment par la Mairie dur quartier Saint Marc à Brest : "cultivons notre quartier". En quoi ce projet est-il singulier et créatif ? La philosophie, ce n'est pas un sujet facile à aborder avec les parents, les enseignants.. Quelle est la plus-value sociale du projet ? Ce projet a un impact social très positif à trois niveaux : - Pour les élèves : ils peuvent aujourd'hui débattre d'un sujet de société tout comme d'un choix interne à leur classe. Quel est le potentiel de déploiement de cette initiative ?

Squashed Philosophers Abridged Editions - HOME Eléments de philosophie Carnet philosophique Process philosophy Process philosophy (or ontology of becoming) identifies metaphysical reality with change and development. Since the time of Plato and Aristotle, philosophers have posited true reality as "timeless", based on permanent substances, while processes are denied or subordinated to timeless substances. If Socrates changes, becoming sick, Socrates is still the same (the substance of Socrates being the same), and change (his sickness) only glides over his substance: change is accidental, whereas the substance is essential. Therefore, classic ontology denies any full reality to change, which is conceived as only accidental and not essential. This classical ontology is what made knowledge and a theory of knowledge possible, as it was thought that a science of something in becoming was an impossible feat to achieve.[1] History[edit] In Ancient Greek thought[edit] An early expression of this viewpoint is in Heraclitus's fragments. Twentieth century[edit] Whitehead's Process and Reality[edit] [edit]
