About the Author

Nick Chandley is a SAPERE Trainer and Editor of the SAPERE Level 1 Course Handbook. Lizzy Lewis is the Development Manager at the Society for Advancing Philosophical Enquiry and Reflection in Education (SAPERE).


'A pervasive environment of terror surrounding high stakes public exams has always made the secondary classroom a tough pitch for P4C enthusiasts. Drawing on the insights of subject specialists, this book nails the myth that there is a necessary contradiction between high-level performance in curriculum-centred domains of knowledge and the transferable skills, virtues and dispositions that are nurtured through P4C. In so doing, the contributors demonstrate that P4C has an invaluable role to play in showing curriculum subjects at their very best- as locations for the joy, mystery, discovery and, in Martha Graham's resonant phrase, 'divine dissatisfaction' that meaningful engagement in any domain can lead to. Whilst Bruner's claim that 'coverage is the enemy of understanding' has yet to be refuted, this text makes a complementary claim - that understanding is the friend of true enquiry.' Barry Hymer, Professor of Psychology in Education, Faculty of Education, University of Cumbria, UK
