The Role of the Community of Inquiry in the Process of Knowing

  • Carla Carrera Planas


Introduction: The notion of Community is a fashionable one. It has been studied (and it is still being studied) from many different areas of thinking: philosophers, sociologists, lawyers, psychologists, pedagogues, and scientists, among others, have offered different points of view from which new terms have been proposed, to shape and limit the more general concept of Community: concepts like Linguistic Community, Community of Speech, Community of Inquiry, Educational Community, Scientific Community, and so on.
