  • listening childhood

    • Authors: alessandra lopes, beatriz fabiana olarietta, carla silva
      Pages: 539 - 543
      Abstract: In this dossiê we present ten texts that, from different perspectives, listen to the voice of childhood. Eight of them were selected from papers addressed at the IX Colloquium on Philosophy and Education, with the them "Philosophy and education in wandering: inventing school, childhood of thinking", held at the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro between 1 and 5 October of 2018. Regardless,  the discipline from which they develop their arguments and the practices that feed them, etc., all of them engage in the task of "listening to" childhood. We hope this dossiê gives good and stimulating resonances to our readers, allowing them to be opened to the childhood, the otherness and the diversity that this dossier contains.

  • the butterfly and the violin the urgency of an appointment: childhood(s),
           school(s) and inequality

    • Authors: patricia raquel redondo
      Pages: 545 - 556
      Abstract: This paper presents a political and pedagogical reflection on the education of the working-class childhoods. Part of its content refers to a research work which tries to comprehend if, in Argentina, state schools located in territories traumatically marked by inequality can produce educational experiences which alter the given order. It tries to explore, based on a school scene, the possibility to think school gestures from the perspective of movement and from the variation that takes place when a teaching team disputes the meanings of equality and it produces other ways to see childhood, childhoods. This is a text which explores the conditions of possibility in the light of the brutal advance of neoliberalism in our country. Boys and girls from the working-class are victims of “trigger-happy” police officers, of repression and persecution by security forces. Their educational careers are frequently interrupted by factors linked to the worsening of their life conditions. The infantilization of poverty in Latin American countries is reflected in the educational field. Segregated child populations attend devaluated school circuits which reproduce the exclusion processes. This paper tries to recover the educational experiences which interrupt what is expected, which dismantle the discourse of fear and insecurity and challenge the discursive equivalence that associates a poor boy or girl with a social danger. Its purpose is to put forth the idea that gestuality, institutional actions rooted in questions and movement which encourages thinking allow us to imagine other possible worlds, to write other melodies that vary from the expected and to invent other polyphonic textures in education. In other words, to cater for those small movements which, on the basis of equality, can define a direction in one way or another. Schools in working-class sectors frequently find themselves trapped in very complex processes; however, there are countless actions that, from the educational perspective, can be conducted to dispute the meanings of teaching in public terms.

  • care in early childhood education: daily scenes of children in a
           kindergarten in fortaleza

    • Authors: meirilene dos santos araújo barbosa, ana maria monte coelho frota
      Pages: 557 - 574
      Abstract: This work has its origin in a master's research about Brazilian Education. The approach that we present in this text reveals the perspectives of caring perceived in a five-year-olds classroom in the daily life in a municipal center for Early Childhood Education in Fortaleza. The theoretical discussions on the theme involved a dialogue between Pedagogy and Philosophy of Education based on the contributions of Kramer (2011), Pagni (2010), Foucault (2010), Rancière (2015), Kohan (2007) and Boff (2005). It was a qualitative research of phenomenological inspiration, which method of data creation was participant observation. The analysis revealed that: in the interactions occurred in pedagogical practices, teachers and children take care of each other; the meaning of caring for children can be perceived in the minutia of their daily actions, as well as in affective involvement, in playing together, in speaking and listening to others, in sharing life on a daily basis; as for the meaning of caring for the adults, it is influenced by the way they were cared for, by their subjectivation and their choices in their way of being; caring humanizes teaching practices, inspiring emancipation; the policy on results that has aimed at "improving educational indices" may represent a danger to Early Childhood Education by minimizing the sharing of specific childhood experiences to training in order to achieve expected results. The study emphasized the need to reflect on the meaning of education and therefore proposes that caring be valued as an ethical decision and as an option for reflection on the way of living and interacting.

  • erratic lines: cartographies of another way of existing in (life and)

    • Authors: luciana pires alves, carmen lúcia vidal pérez
      Pages: 575 - 594
      Abstract: In dialogue with Gilles Deleuze, this article seeks to discuss the ideas of Fernand Deligny and his contributions to think the (re) invention of the school based on children (autistic or not) who present another way of existing in school and in life: those that inhabit school life with their differences. In the present text, we bring forth two experiences that are being made with children, autistic or not, in public schools in the Metropolitan Region of the State of Rio de Janeiro, one in Niterói and another in the Baixada Fluminense. In the effort of abandoning the logics and practices of the "thought project", we are open to an inventive encounter, that is, one that creates what it finds, because the network's goal is not to capture the object, but to weave singular existences. The present theoretical intersection allows us to be with the child in the sense of permitting, accompanying, wandering with them, which constitutes another approach. Deleuze states that children wish to constitute their maps, their paths through and between the real and the virtual, the adults also being ways to be travelled. Therefore, in a relationship with them, we do not have to interpret their wordings, but to perceive and invest in their and our displacements. A fierce opponent of institutions of all kinds, Deligny makes a radical critique of positivist educational conceptions and rejects the vision of autism and cognitive deficits as pathological deviations from a preexisting norm. Deligny perceived autism as a singular production of existence. To him, it was not a matter of forcing autistic individuals (who do not speak) with whom he worked to conform to the standards of language, but to devise a way that would allow us to exist with them, even if it meant changing our own way of existing. Also, it is not a matter of "resocializing" or governing the children of favelas exposed to social risk, but of a fragile work of being with them in their “tessituras” of places or policies of proximity. Deligny and Deleuze point out that being with children can mean to accompany, to trace, to go with the difference surrounding alterity and the attempts of an acting that does not fit in, that does not contain or delimit itself and others by contexts.

  • reading bodies: childhood and school

    • Authors: talula montiel trindade, sandra regina simonis richter
      Pages: 595 - 607
      Abstract: This writing brings literary reading and schooled childhood closer in order to highlight literature integrated to arts, as an art of the word in Basic Education. The philosophical approach of reading as an experience woven in the link between text and reader, body and soul, silence and listening, helps to forge closer relations between body and literary reading, to confabulate other meanings of reading lurking in experiences of childhood, art and the educational dimension of aesthetic perception of literary reading. The interlocution with Jean-Luc Nancy, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Ricardo Piglia and Walter Kohan allows us to think about the relation of children to the educational dimension of reading and how it can be lived/experienced. To consider reading as an experience, as distinct ways of embodying the word, requires us to rethink how education is placed before childhood. It involves considering the potential that literary reading can hold as an affective experience in childhood and how a fundamentally intellectual practice such as reading can affect our senses and resonate in our bodies as well as provoke our thinking. The arts, and among them, literature, configure the event of the privileged esthetic dimension of an irreducibly diverse body in its sensitive accesses – sensorial, sentimental, sensual, sensible. The presence of each art is unique and heterogeneous, which makes them communicate to each other, putting them in contact and affecting them. Perhaps the exercise of literary reading is less an exercise in schooling sensitivities and standardizing singularities and more a way to welcome the aesthetic perception of otherness in the experience of feeling world senses.

  • conceptions of childhood and the education of working class children: a
           Benjaminian critique of the school project without a party

    • Authors: luciana helena monsores, ligia maria motta lima leão de aquino
      Pages: 609 - 624
      Abstract: The present article attempts to systematize some contributions of the philosopher Walter Benjamin with the intention of helping us think about childhood and the education of the working class in a context in which are formulated law propositions like Escola Sem Partido (School Without Political Party), in Brazil. These are propositions with a strong conservative nature and ideological control that have been developed in recent years. We seek in Benjamin the notion of experience and how it relates to childhood and the field of education, as well as his contributions to popular or proletarian education. From these notions and Benjaminian referential, we aim to analyze education projects and bills, such as the one mentioned above, inquiring about the conceptions of childhood, history, experience and politics that underlie this debate. The intention here is to think, from a benjaminian point of view, the continuous growth and expansion of the ideas that guide the “Escola Sem Partido” bill and its influence on the education of young children, especially working class children. For this, we consider some of the author's writings as: Experience, Experience and Poverty, The Life of Students, Programe for a Proletarian Children's Theater, Communist Pedagogy, The Storyteller and his radio narratives presented in Berlin and Frankfurt radio stations, in which children's culture and everyday life stand out. In addition to Walter Benjamin, we also refer to publications such as Gaudêncio Frigotto and Jorge Larrosa and to federal bill 193/2016 (“Escola Sem Partido”), as legal document analyzed, in order to begin tracing the paths of this study, which is part of a current doctoral research.

  • infantilization, ubuntu and teko porã: general elements for education and
           ethics afroperspectivistas

    • Authors: renato noguera, marcos barreto
      Pages: 625 - 644
      Abstract: This article proposes an unusual approach on childhood and the dynamics of school routine. Starting from the assumption that childhood is a polysemous concept, it invites reflection on the concept of childfication as a possibility of rupture with current practices of reality’s experimentation, based on African and Brazilian indigenous philosophical frameworks. In order to do this, a dialogue is established with the African philosophy of Ubuntu and Brazilian indigenous philosophy’s Teko Porã with the aim of bringing to the educational area the connection of the individual with community, recognizing and respecting diversity in a planned vision, where living beings live in an interdependent relationship. These concepts discard the colonizing perspective that we are prepared to dominate, emphasizing that human beings, nonhuman animals and the environment are not available and we must treat living beings without utilitarianism, but like a part of us.

  • the learning of “to be dead” as a methodological strategy in
           research with children

    • Authors: caroline trapp de queiroz
      Pages: 645 - 657
      Abstract: This article aims to present a methodology developed collectively within the discussions of the “Childhood and Contemporary Culture Research Group”, institutionally linked to the Postgraduate Program in Education of the State University of Rio de Janeiro and explored – in a particular way – in the context of a doctoral research field. In addition, it proposes to know about the experiences of displacement of children who move to a new residence. The expression “to be dead”  in the title is based on Italo Calvino' s tale that brings forth, in Palomar’s reflection – a literary character whose life is marked by the singular way in which he sees the world –, the possibility of creating a perspective of seeing that implies perceiving a reality in which one's presence does not determine in a directive way the course of the experiences, although it implies a material change in the lived time and space. Thus, when he talks about learning to look at the world as someone who is dead, Palomar provokes us to think of ways of getting to know others which demand a not exempt observation and therefore does not disclaims responsibility from the researcher of the relationship that he establishes with his interlocutors. The following reflections come to compose our questions: When the child attracts our gaze in the quotidian of a time marked by acceleration, in which to look at others has become loss, be it of time, money or ethics that advocates considering others in the decisions we make individually' How does childhood show itself to us in the movement of life' What is it possible for it to tell us, even if the proposal is to postpone direct interlocution, lingering in the observation that, mediated by what affects us, it also provokes a dialogical movement'

  • autobiography: childhood, memory and forgetting from a philosophical

    • Authors: aída scarlette fuentes medina
      Pages: 659 - 670
      Abstract: Childhood, with the passage of time, becomes an obscure passage of our lives. Our main ally to reach it, memory, often fails us, and when we look back we find stories that we cannot precisely place in time, or yet, sometimes, we cannot precisely tell if we've lived them or not; they may well be made-up thoughts, something that someone else once told us or lived, or even something we saw on television or read. At first sight, it seems there is little we can tell about our own childhood, for apparently no one can access memories of it; nor can we aspire to get more than a couple of fleeting images. Even with all this difficulties, we face our pasts constantly and live in a permanent relationship with our memories, which, being diffuse or not, we strive to retain in many ways, there being those who even venture to capture on paper the little they know. This work intends to talk about childhood from childhood itself, having autobiographies as an object and trying to get into the purposes and reasons that motivate people to write an autobiography of their childhoods, as well as the meanings they acquire due to the tension between memory and fiction. To carry out such a task we will sail among the voices of different philosophers who have referred to autobiography and fiction. Also, in the end, we will pick three autobiographical texts as an object of study.

  • philosophy for children program as a proposal of moral education: analysis
           compared with other approaches to moral education

    • Authors: adolfo agundez rodriguez

      Abstract: What we will try to demonstrate in the present article is that the proposal of Philosophy for Children (P4C), regarded holistically and, in particular, in its ethical dimension, can be thought of as a program of moral education. In order to do this, after a brief review of the epistemological foundations that are at the base of the Philosophy for Children program with respect to moral education, we will compare the ethical aspect of this program to other approaches to moral education (the approach of the clarification of values, that of request, narrative and that of discursive, cordial and reconstruction ethics). Finally, to complete our analysis, we will present a critique of Lipman's proposal, which, far from diminishing its validity, can be used to project this approach to moral education beyond its own limits. We maintain that, taken in its commitment to moral education, Philosophy for Children is an integrative and original proposal. Integrative, in the sense that it is a proposal that brings together the vital elements present in the main contemporary approaches to education. Original, for promoting the development of a higher order, critical, creative and caring thought as necessary to the permanent formation of the moral subject.

      Abstract: ‘Philosophy for Children’, firstly proposed by Matthew Lipman, aims to nourish both critical thinking and argumentative ability of participants. This model conceives of children as a crucial resource for social development: their thought is supposed to be free from undisputable dogmas and theories. Therefore, their questions about philosophical issues can shed new light on them, or even underline some contradictions of the adult-like society, that we unconsciously tend to disregard. The philosophical background of P4C pushes for an in-practice philosophy, highlighting the value of critical thinking and ambitious questioning against a docile acceptance of well-established theories (and social practices). Yet, a radical interpretation of this claim results in a widespread relativism that would mislead models such as P4C from their own goals. In this paper, resulting from the observation of several P4C sessions, I argue that, although they are supposed to be cross-sections of social environments, communities of inquiry as defined by Lipman are conventional (ceremonial) contexts: the sentences pronounced within the community, are highly performative. Moreover, the quality of research crucially rests on the epistemic openness of a jointly-chosen question, that influences the following discussion. However, sometimes social and cultural differences among participants are not completely erased within heterogeneous communities of inquiry. Hence, by rejecting the radical interpretation, I propose a methodological integration to the standard P4C model, that could assure both participation and epistemic openness even in heterogeneous communities.
