The 3rd NWS Conference:

Wittgenstein, the Philosophy of Education and the Education of Philosophy

Department of Philosophy, Education and the Studies of Religion
University of Southern Denmark, Odense June 8-9, 2012

The general theme of the conference is to explore a Wittgensteinian approach to the interplay between philosophical method, pedagogy in general and philosophy of education.

Teaching and various forms of instruction, training and learning are recurrent themes in the writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, making his philosophy a rich source for our understanding of the relationship between education and learning. Moreover, Wittgenstein’s work is an increasing influence in debates within the philosophy of education, especially in questions concerning the pedagogies of philosophy, therapeutic and dialogical methods in education, the role of practice for learning and discussions of the respective contribution to education from philosophy and empirical research.

The conference will include three invited speakers as well as a number of smaller presentations organised in sessions according to theme. See Call for Papers.

PhD Session
At least one of the sessions (depending on number of participants) will be reserved for presentations from PHD students. Prof. Paul Standishwill participate in the discussions of the presentations.
