Debate / Philosophy – Floris Velema (ed.)

From Plato’s dialogues to medieval scholasticism to John Stuart Mill’s defense of free speech, there is an intimate historical relation between debate and philosophy. So why have debate clubs and philosophy classrooms become such separate worlds in contemporary schools?

This book presents a method that combines the argumentative skills of debate education with central concepts in political philosophy, such as freedom, justice and equality. A practical guide for high school teachers that offers a new approach to fostering democratic values and engaged citizenship.

This book includes contributions by Han van Ruler, Tomislav Reškovac, Floris Velema, Debbie Newman, Gijs van Oenen, Devin van den Berg and Miha Andrič.
