In my experience and according to my approach, doing Philosophy with Children is not and cannot be simply a ‘philosophical practice’. This is why the distinction between ‘for’ (P4C) and ‘with’ is still meaningful to me. Because when we say ‘with children’ we mean a kind of existential immersion: to be a philosopher ‘in situation’. When on the other hand, with preposition ‘for’, we mean the ‘pedagogical’ method of administration and adjustment. But, doing philosophy with children has another meaning. It means indeed a method, not anymore simply pedagogical, but purely philosophical. That’s why, to the question ‘which philosophy?’ it isn’t possible to answer before, but only after.
