2015 – October – Philosophical Compas course – The Netherlands

The Philosophical Compas course was developed for the EPIC International CoPI training in Lage Zwaluue in 2012 by EPIC International trainer Ed Weijers and subsequently offered as a ‘stand alone’ course in The Netherlands at ISVW (international School for Philosophy) and at the University of Antwerp (Belgium). The course was first offered in the ISVW in October 2013 as became clear that participants of the Professional PwCY course who had no degree in philosophy needed some basic philosophical background knowledge.

The Philosophical Compas course gives the participants an introduction in the fields of philosophy and logic in order for facilitators to be able to recognise the philsophical ideas, positions, potential and philosophical thinking moves of participants in an inquiry (or any setting in which people philosophize).
