Richard Anthone Philosophical Inquiry and the Internet
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The central question of this paper is if philosophical inquiry is possible on the Internet. I will therefore investigate both subjects, try to come to a conclusion and to some recommendations. To get a better idea of the relevance of this question, I will:• elaborate briefly on the history of the Internet, discuss its possibilities and technical aspects,• elaborate briefly on philosophical inquiry and its main characteristics,• try to find some common aspects in both,• discuss the history and the evolution of the existing electronic discussion list (the p4clist@belnet.be) and expand on the results of a questionnaire I sent to every member on the list.I will try to show that real philosophical inquiry is primarily a matter of communication, both verbal and non-verbal. Internet is obviously a matter of communication, hut the question remains if technology truly creates new possibilities of communication.

Clive Lindop Wisdom and Intelligence in Philosophy for Children
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Philosophy for Children aims to encourage children to think about the quality of their thinking. By modelling and exercising children in formal and informal reasoning, it aims to develop excellence in judgment. This being so, Philosophy for Children can be expected to contribute to more intelligent behavior.Much evidence has been adduced for enhanced performance on standardized tests in mathematics and language arts on the part of children engaged in Philosophy for children programs. Yet the intelligent person is not one who merely does well on a test or in the classroom, but is one who can also use his/her mind to fullest advantage in all the various transactions of everyday life. This extra dimension of intelligence is incorporated into Robert Sternberg's reconceptualization of the traditional notion of intelligence as mental self management. In this paper, Sternberg's concept of the triarchic mind is used to scrutinize the Philosophy for Children program for the extent to which it exercises children in the three kinds of mental processes he considers essential for intelligent functioning.
