  1. Teaching Philosophy Through Paintings: A Museum Workshop.Savvas Ioannou, Kypros Georgiou & Ourania Maria Ventista - 2017 - Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis 38 (1):62-83.
    There is wide research about the Philosophy for/with Children program. However, there is not any known attempt to investigate how a philosophical discussion can be implemented through a museum workshop. The present research aims to discuss aesthetic and epistemological issues with primary school children through a temporary art exhibition in a museum in Cyprus.

    Por más de una década, la escritura de Kazantzakis ha atraı́do a una serie de comparatistas-comentaristas. La propia declaración del autor acerca de sus influencias -Nietzsche, Bergson, Lenin, Cristo, Buda- ha dado a los crı́ticos el incentivo para verlo principalmente a la luz de cada uno de estos pensadores, a la sombra de cada antecesor, y no como escritor con sombra propia. Es como si estos crı́ticos hubiesen probado un plato único y, sin poder identificarlo por lo que es, lo (...)
