Special Interest Group

Philosophy of Education

The SIG is closely associated with the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain  which is an associate society of BERA. We seek to foster debate on philosophically interesting issues pertaining to education, and to bring philosophical methods and sensibilities to bear on educational matters. We have an eclectic and inclusive view of philosophy and enjoy a membership both from those who would consider themselves to be ‘philosophers’ and those who see the point of ‘philosophical moments’ in wider educational projects. As well as a presence at BERA conferences, we seek to work with other SIGs and with local branches of PESGB to host seminars and events through the year.
