Eduardo Infante in conversation with José Manuel Acevedo

Life and learning

Colombia Digital 2021, 

The Spanish philosopher Eduardo Infante will talk to José Manuel Acevedo about educational systems, methods of teaching and the search for learning spaces that will benefit young people. Infante teaches Philosophy at a school in Gijon, Spain, using unorthodox methods: he turns public spaces, and the social media, into classrooms, taking classes in parks or sparking debate on Twitter. In his book Filosofía en la calle (2019), the author talks about this way of doing philosophy with his students, asking questions about daily life and putting them into philosophical context with reference to, for example, Plato, Kant, Bentham or Weil. He will talk to the journalist José Manuel Acevedo.
