- What follow is an attempt to isolate the specificity of the nature of teaching and learning
philosophy in which philosophy is seen as identical with or closely tied to a specific activity.
Because philosophers who embrace one of certain views tend to think that learning and
teaching this activity is a main aim of philosophical education, guidelines for teaching and
learning practice are already implied by their own conceptions. However, discussions of the
nature of the nature of the subject are conducted apart from debates about adequate teaching
methods. In this paper, I want to examine how different conceptions are related to teaching
philosophical practices, that is to say how methods of teaching philosophy can vary with these
different conceptions of philosophy.
