Philosophy

"Wonder is the beginning of wisdom"

(Socrates)

"To find yourself, think for yourself"

(Socrates)

In Philosophy sessions at The Dominie the children engage with some of life's big questions: Is happiness the most important thing? What is fairness? Could  you be friends with a robot? Games and stories are used to stimulate the sharing of philosophical thought and the children are encouraged to be receptive to one another's ideas (even if they completely disagree!). Philosophy sessions develop flexible and creative thinking and maybe, just maybe, they get us closer to truth (if there is such a thing...another of life's big questions).
