The Metaphysics of Childhood

The Metaphysics of Childhood

The second in a series of six public talks on various Images of Childhood takes place tomorrow evening (Wednesday November 6, 5.30pm) at the University of Aberdeen Regent Lecture Theatre.

Dr Baldacchino’s talk is the second in an innovative series of six public talks set up by the University of Aberdeen Faculty of Education to raise awareness amongst all those involved in educating young people that various images of childhood exist. Lecture Series organiser, Dr Iain Davidson of the Faculty of Education said: “We are presenting a very wide range and diversity of topics and speakers, the latter looking at images of childhood from a variety of perspectives. Tomorrow’s talk brings out what lies behind visual images of children; getting at assumptions in this way again highlights the need for clear, hard thinking as the basis for educational research, practice and legislation.”

The Images of Childhood lecture series has been organised by the University of Aberdeen Faculty of Education in memory of John Darling, a distinguished educational philosopher who was on the staff of the University until he died of cancer in 2002, just after the establishment of the new Faculty of Education.
