Philosophy for Children

Comments Off

an article published in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (first published May 2, 2002, substantive revision June 8, 2009).

In the United States, philosophy typically makes its formal entry into the curriculum at the college level. A growing number of high schools offer some introduction to philosophy, often in special literature courses for college bound students. In Europe and many other countries, it is much more common to find philosophy in the high school curriculum. However, philosophy prior to high school seems relatively uncommon around the world. This may suggest that serious philosophical thinking is not for pre-adolescents. Two reasons might be offered for accepting this view. First, philosophical thinking requires a level of cognitive development that, one may believe, is beyond the reach of pre-adolescents. Second, the school curriculum is already crowded; and introducing a subject like philosophy will not only distract students from what they need to learn, it may encourage them to become skeptics rather than learners. However, both of these reasons can be challenged. They will be addressed in turn: Continue Reading…

Her empathic understanding of the issues involved in their continuation versus their eventual, hoped for abandonment, remains to this day unsurpassed.

DragonFly – Volunteer Projects, Thailand

Comments Off

Dragonfly Volunteer Projects came into being in 2004 when founder Martin Walsh decided to do something about the obvious demand for volunteer English teachers in the rural Northeast region of Thailand.  English as a second language (ESL) was most often being taught by teachers who had little training in the language and sometimes by no one at all!  Martin wanted to help schools find much-sought-after native speakers of English to teach their students without placing increased demand on the schools’ already strained budgets.  Thus, Dragonfly Volunteer Projects were formed as a link between people looking for low-cost volunteering opportunities in Thailand and the students whose needs they could help to meet … (about 1/2).

Population and Community Development Association PDA

Comments Off

also in Thai

The PDA was founded in 1974 as a non-governmental organization with the initial aim to complement the efforts of the Royal Thai Government in promoting family planning in Thailand, especially in areas where knowledge and access to services were scarce. Utilizing a participatory, community-based approach, PDA recruited and trained residents of villages and urban neighborhoods to provide information on family planning, including the supervised, non-medical distribution of oral contraceptives. This distribution network covered more than one-third of the country, thus contributing significantly to the decrease in the annual population growth rate from 3.3% in the mid-1970s to 0.6% in 2005. During the same period, the number of children per family fell from 7 to under two … (Homepage 1/2).

Shamanism predates all other religions and survives today after over 20,000 years, because it is a sustainable philosophical way of life.
  • The Akha live by the code “all is always now” an inherent belief of the “eternal wheel of time” where there is no separation between mankind and a “material or objective” world. It is the bridging link between the world and the human psyche, the collective unconscious, or the“synchronicity” of human life. In Jungian psychology it is a ‘universal archetype’ – an inner cosmic map of the Universe within ourselves … (full long text OUR CULTURE, THE WORLD AND THE GREAT SPIRIT).
