Philosophy

Description: Children should be seen and not heard...but who says? A Philosophy academic is challenging the old adage by teaching primary school children to argue and to think for themselves. For the past three years Dr Andrew Fisher —an academic in the Department of Philosophy at The University of Nottingham — has run Philosophy clubs in primary schools in the Bilborough area of the city, with the aim of raising their aspirations and self-belief. In this video Dr Fisher and the children explain what they get out of the programme.
