an experience of the infant gaze: philosophy at the university; philosophy at schools

laura de la fuente, laura morales, andrea quiroga


The experience of doing philosophy was the purpose and pretext that led to this paper, which gives a narrative account of the theoretical - practical relations that emerged in a university extension group at the Universidad Nacional del Sur –Argentina. These relations involved exploring the differences between thinking philosophy in the university as opposed to the school, and led to a search to break with the academic canon of “scientificity,” neutrality, and universality, by rescuing the infant gaze, and re-thinking thinking as a way of receiving and conceiving the new.
