This journal focusses on research into philosophy with school-aged children. What was once called Philosophy for/with Children (P4C) has developed into a sub-discipline of philosophy with its own history, traditions and pedagogy incorporating philosophical inquiry in the classroom and Socratic dialogue, particularly through the Community of Inquiry (CoI) methodology.
The JPS welcomes submissions which interrogate theoretical and conceptual understandings as well as those which draw on original empirical research on the pedagogy and practice of philosophy in schools. The journal also reviews new books and new teacher resources in the field. The aim of the journal is to encourage academic reflection and research on philosophy in schools, making such information widely available through an open-access format.
