Philosophy for Young People allows young people to experience rational and reasonable dialogue about things that matter to them in the world that appears to them.
In these fun, dynamic and interactive sessions all participants work together in a ‘community of enquiry’. The aim for each young person/adult is not to win an argument but to become clearer, more accurate, less self-contradictory, and more aware of other arguments and values before reaching a conclusion.
The sessions at VISUAL are led by Dr. Noel Kavanagh in response to The Corona, a film produced by VISUAL documenting young people’s experiences of the pandemic.
Dr. Noel Kavanagh is a lecturer in Philosophy at the Department of Humanities, Carlow College. His primary area of interest is the concept of love in philosophy and how philosophy expresses itself in popular culture. Current areas of research include, philosophy of the Animal, phenomenological psychology and the interconnections between philosophy, psychoanalysis, and Literature. He is a passionate advocate for philosophy at second level education and a Philosophy for Young People practitioner and a strong believer in the idea of public philosophy.
Here's Noel and the students of Tyndall College talking about their experience of Philosophy for Young People on KCLR96FM.
Teachers can book a workshop on Tuesday mornings with Noel by emailing email@example.com
