Laura D’Olimpio. Media and Moral Education: A Philosophy of Critical Engagement

Juan Rafael G. Macaranas

 

Abstract:

The call for critical engagement is for everyone: global citizens, educators, professors, academicians, administrators, learners, doctors, lawyers, philosophers, theologians, etc. However, this book will be of particular interest to pracademics, researchers, and graduate students in education in general, philosophy of education, ethics, critical theory and communication, film and media studies. As members of a community of learners, we need to educate people to be able to think and act ethically for themselves. We can use philosophy as a tool and guide in dealing with dilemmas in social media, technology, multimedia, internet, among others. Matthew Lipman (2003) started the Philosophy for Children known as P4C and argued that philosophy need not be confined to universities.
