This leaf category contains articles relating ethics to philosophy for children, which may include both works concerning philosophical dialogues with children about ethical questions and works on the ethics of philosophical dialogues with children. Philosophy for Children is here understood as a (family of) method(s) on how to support children (and others) in talking about philosophy, as well as (a) theory(/ies) about why. Works within the field may concern both the how and the why: both descriptions of how one successfully goes about facilitating such dialogues, and theoretical as well as empirical investigations of the question of why we ought to do so, which may include studies on the effects on participants, but also philosophical investigations into the value of philosophizing (together). Works in this category need not be limited to concerning children specifically, as the area that is often labelled ”philosophy for children” (P4C) has expanded to include philosophical dialogues with other groups outside of academia as well, such as adults with disabilities, or the elderly. This category also covers works concerning similar but slightly different methodologies from P4C, for example philosophy with children (PwC), community of philosophical inquiry (CoPI), philosophical dialogues, socratic dialogues, etc., as long as they concern ethics. Other sibling categories, sorting under the parent category ”Philosophy for Children”, deal with other aspects of the field, and help further explain the field. Works that are rather concerned with the ethics of childhood, family ethics, or the philosophy of childhood, etc., are sorted under other categories, and readers and authors may well want to check these out. See, for example, “Family ethics”, “Reproducive ethics”, “Genetic ethics”, “Ethics of Childhood” and ”Childhood”.
