education. The Socratic Classroom captures a variety of philosophical approaches to classroom practice that could be broadly described as Socratic in form. There is an exploration of three distinct approaches that make significant contributions to classroom practice: Matthew Lipman's Community of Inquiry, Leonard Nelson's Socratic Dialogue, and David Bohm's Dialogue. All three models influence what is termed in this book as 'Socratic pedagogy'. Socratic pedagogy is multi-dimensional and is underpinned by 'generative, evaluative, and connective thinking'. These terms describe the dispositions inherent in thinking through philosophical inquiry. This book highlights how philosophy as inquiry can contribute to educational theory and practice, while also demonstrating how it can be an effective way to approach teaching and learning. Audience This publication is suited to educators, teacher educators, philosophers of education and philosophers in general. It has a theoretical and practical focus, making it truly interdisciplinary.
