Philosophy and philosophical attitude: their contributions to education


The interweaving between philosophical thought and educational practice goes back to the very dawn of Western culture, but the relationship between philosophy and education had not always been peaceful and smooth, and neither is today. This article begins by clarifying the nature of these activities in order to address their mutual linkage, whether philosophy is seen as a personal attitude or as an academic discipline. Particular attention is paid to the thought of how these issues are addressed by some authors in the UK underlining three philosophical resources of great interest to education: the logical analysis of language, the study of the history of philosophy and practical reason. In conclusion, it is proposed to promote the cultivation of a philosophical attitude among teachers so that they can carry out more wisely their work.

Key Words: Education, philosophy of education, teacher training, practical wisdom, disciplines.
