Abstract

According to M. Lipman and A. Sharp, the Philosophy for Children (p4c) is an educational proposal remains somehow flexible and successfully applies to diverse contexts, including informal education involving adults. For this reason, we believe that the “c” in the acronym refers not only to “children”, but may be broadened to “community”. This model is based on a dialogic approach: we focus on the importance of community discussion (Community of Inquiry). Building a "Community of Inquiry" between adults can lead to an inclusive and democratic process, even in the contemporary scenario. The Community of Inquiry becomes a learning context between adults.
