Thinking: The Journal of Philosophy for Children

iapc-thinking-cover Thinking: The Journal of Philosophy for Children was published from 1979 through 2014 by the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children, a non-profit educational institute at Montclair State University. The journal was a forum for the work of both theorists and practitioners of philosophical practice with children, and published such work in all forms, including philosophical argument and reflection, classroom transcripts, curricula, empirical research, and reports from the field. The journal also maintained a tradition in publishing articles in the hermeneutics of childhood, a field of intersecting disciplines including cultural studies, social history, philosophy, art, literature and psychoanalysis.
