Kappa Omicron Nu FORUM Call for Papers
Ideas Shaping Practice: Philosophy of Home Economics/Human Sciences
Guest Editor: Dr. Sue L. T. McGregor, Mount Saint Vincent University
Objectives: This theme of Kappa Omicron Nu FORUM will serve one or more of these purposes: (a) help practitioners come to love the idea of philosophy, of being wise and knowledgeable about the underlying belief systems shaping their practice; (b) stimulate and scaffold an international conversation about the role of philosophy in our practice and what that philosophy might be, given the challenges faced by humanity, lived out in the everyday lives of individuals and families; and (c) consider the idea that different regions of the world may have different philosophies, rather than one global approach. The overall objective is to foster a dialogue about the place of philosophy in our practice, not to agree on a philosophy.
