• What are Philosophical Chairs?

    Philosophical Chairs is a format for classroom discussion that ensures respectful dialogue, mutual understanding, and deep engagement into the subject matter. Once a statement is provided, participants select a side, either for/against, pro/con.  Discussion takes place and participants are encouraged to switch sides if their opinion is changed throughout the discussion.
