From RE to RMPS: The case for the Philosophication of Religious Education in Scotland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article looks at the emergence of Philosophy within the subject variously described as Religious Education, Religious and Moral Education and Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies. The particular context for this is provided by the proposals and guidelines published by the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) review (March, November 2006, May 2008). The article analyses references to Philosophy in the Scottish curricular review and seeks to place these against a wider background of increasing philosophical content and approaches in RME documents since 1972. The documentary traces of the 'philosophication' of the subject are also mapped against definitions of Philosophy provided by academic philosophers.
