These bright, young pupils have been asked to consider "whether it is possible to step in the same river twice?".
One says: "You could step in the river one day and then go home. Then the next day you could come back to the same river - as long as you know the way - and do it again."
In a flash of inspiration, one of the boys who has been waggling his hand impatiently says : "If you step in the river on Saturday and then you went to step in the river on the next day - where you stepped on Saturday would be gone because the river keeps on moving."
Einstein says, once a mind has been stretched over a new idea - it cannot be stretched back
One of the teachers says "Philosophy teaches you how to think things through, solve problems and deal with moral dilemmas."
The head teacher adds: "Our children are going into such a changing world. We can't predict what they're going to need in terms of knowledge, but one thing we can give them is confidence and a sense of how to learn. Philosophy gives them those skills."
CONFIDENCE and a willingness to QUESTION - key skills in an ever changing world. I think it's a great idea ....I wonder if they take challenging 4 year olds.....?
