WITH apologies to show business, there’s no business like the business of law school.
Peter and Maria Hoey
The basic rules of a market economy — even golden oldies, like a link between supply and demand — just don’t apply.

Thomas Nenon (ed.), Kant, Kantianism, and Idealism: The Origins of Continental Philosophy
Reviewed by J. M. Fritzman, Lewis & Clark College
This is the first of eight volumes in the series The History of Continental Philosophy. In his introductory chapter, Thomas Nenon notes that, in contrast to analytic philosophy, continental philosophy developed through a deep and sustained dialogue with Kant's philosophy and those thinkers influenced by it in France and Germany during the nineteenth century. He is correct; Kant's philosophy begins its rehabilitation in analytic philosophy with the 1966 publications of Jonathan Bennett's Kant's Analytic and Peter Strawson's Bounds of Sense: An Essay on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. He also observes that, although Kant's philosophy has now been appropriated by both analytic and continental philosophy, the other philosophers discussed in this book have generally been ignored in analytic philosophy.

A wise move
pedagogy | Published in TESpro on 30 September, 2011 | By: Michael Shaw
The idea of teaching philosophy to primary pupils can strike traditionalists as absurd. Surely children should be learning to hold a pencil, not debating whether or not the pencil actually exists?

The first class of Philosophy for children in the UK was held in Langbank Primary School, Scotland in October 1990. To mark the 21 years, our Patron, Catherine McCall and Langbank Primary school are hosting a Celebration that will bring together the original 5 year old children who pioneered 'p4c' in the UK (who are now 26 years old) with the current Langbank children doing philosophy in 2011. There will be videos and live demonstration with the children. The event will be hosted at Langbank Primary School on Friday October 14th from 1.30 - 3.30 p.m. For more details visit
