Imagine an international group of philosophers of education coming together on a Greek island three years in a row to reflect and promote a conception of philosophy as a lived experience. This book is a result of their discussions and makes an original contribution to the field.

The authors here present conceptual and critical works relevant to current theoretical developments and debates within the fields of philosophy and education. The articles contribute both to philosophical clarifications and the advancement of research with solid arguments for theoretical and practical redirections. To deploy their arguments, the contributors draw on classical thinkers such as Plato, Kant and Dewey, and on contemporary prominent theorists, such as Derrida, Badiou and Deleuze, with fresh and critical perspectives.

Marianna Papastephanou is Assistant Professor at the University of Cyprus, where she teaches Philosophy of Education.
