UNESCO Study: "Philosophy: A School of Freedom"

"UNESCO has just released an important publication surveying P4C worldwide. Australia features fairly prominently. A summary of Australia's contribution by Stephan Millett is nicely displayed." (Source: Alan Tapper)

Philosophy and Ethics Books

Ethics 1Ethics 2ethics 3

"The first book in the series (for units 1A and 1B of the Philosophy and Ethics course) will be very useful for anyone in middle school (years 5-9) with gifted or talented kids: it has lots of activities. The other two will be good for slightly older kids wishing to get their teeth into something. All three would be a good resource for teachers to train themselves in philosophy and critical thinking. We wrote them with teaching in mind." (Source: Stephan Millett)
