“Since Philosophy is an inquiry on the world, it firstly aims at knowledge, so the questions related to knowledge are central and they have the priority compared to all the other questions”
– Rethinking Knowledge: The Heuristic View – Carlo Cellucci
We propose laboratories of philosophical practice led by experts. The meetings are focused on reflecting in a shared and structured way through dialogic processes to define, clarify, and comprehend concepts or problems to act consciously; let unknown implications of choices, actions and thoughts emerge; help developing self-awareness; develop a common language to talk about actuality; promote reciprocal understanding and collective thinking; comprehend what is the meaning of doing research; share ideas and opinions constructively and productively; finally, reflect on individual and social values.
Philosophy is a Maieutic art, in Socrate’s terms, it is a tool of knowledge, of self-care and care of the others through a dialog that generates the Self in the encounter with the Other.
SEMINARS CONFERENCES SYMPOSIA
“So, today, we can dedicate ourselves to the conversation, being in company…According to my proposal, going from right to left, each of us will have to give a eulogy at Eros, as best we can…”
– Symposium – Plato
We propose seminars and conferences led by experts on specific themes during which the participants are invited to intervene and give their contribution through questions, ideas, projects, and considerations.
The Symposia will be around themes of common interest, and there will be refreshments and different kinds of artistic entertainment.
P4C - PHILOSOPHY FOR CHILDREN
P4C (Philosophy for Children) includes a rich set of activities designed to develop collaborative skills, cooperation, dialogic competence, empathy, critical and logical thinking, creativity, curiosity, sense of solidarity and responsibility.
The program consists of interactive and dynamic sessions which are focused on the ability to listen, to share, to observe, to express ideas and feelings, to choose by motivating and justifying preferences and opinions, to use abstract concepts, and to put questions in the Socratic way. Any session aims to enhance memory, emotional intelligence, respect, and awareness of one self and the other.
The activities and the games that characterize P4C are of a sensory-motor kind and they are developed to increase the communicative competence through body and verbal language.
