This month’s workshop asks the question: “same or different”?

  • Session 1 (ages 5-7): 10.30am – 11.30am
  • Session 2 (ages 8-10): 11.45am – 12.45pm
What makes something the same thing when it undergoes change? What makes something what it is? What makes you you and me me? Could I ever be you and you me? Will your thinking be the same at the end of the session as it was at the start? What does that mean?!

The Philosophy Foundation is a charity that aims to foster a culture of curiosity and wonder through philosophy. They believe that philosophy is not just a subject, but a way of life that can help people of all ages and backgrounds to think more clearly, creatively, and critically.
