P4C Symposium at Babeș-Bolyai University – July 10, 2020

The Department of Philosophy at Babeș-Bolyai University (link: organizes a 1-day workshop on philosophy for children (P4C), in preparation for the SOPHIA annual network meeting (link: ). Communities of dialogue – what is their role in philosophy for children?

Many of the current approaches in philosophy for children are indirectly focusing the brains of the children, i.e. they are focused on developing children critical thinking in general and their logical abilities in particular. While these are valuable assets for all the children, we consider that the dialogical and relational aspect could be more efficiently valorized by P4C activities. In this respect, we consider that dialogue, as a more human-centered and more philosophical concept, could be explored as the core of the children philosophical communities. This is why we propose to address the topic of “communities of dialogue” as a central topic of this BBU Symposium.

We invite researchers and practitioners interested in the field of philosophy for/with children to submit the following type of materials. The working language of the workshop will be English.

1.If you wish to present a paper, please submit an abstract of 250-300 words.

2.If you wish to submit a poster, please send an abstract of 150-200 words.

Possible issues of papers can be related to: – specific philosophers/ scholars who have developed theories on dialogue that have relevance for P4C (e.g. Martin Buber, David Bohm etc.) – practicalities of cultivating dialogue with children (dialogue as contributing to an open and tolerant but also critical community) – language, communication, dialogue (specificity of dialogue in developing the communicative abilities) – dialogue and moral autonomy – dialogue and narrative identity

The panels will be organized during a 1-day workshop on July 10, 2020, at the Department of Philosophy, Babes-Bolyai University. There is no fee for participating at the symposium. The organizers cannot cover participants’ expenses related to the workshop – participants will have to organize their own travel, accommodation and meals.

Abstracts should be sent via an email message directed to Please include in the subject “P4C BBU Symposium” Deadline for abstract submission: March 1, 2020. Notification for accepted papers: March 15, 2020.
