Teaching Philosophy for Children


Program Description:

Children - many of them at least - are natural philosophers. They have a curiosity and sense of wonder that leads them to ask genuinely philosophical questions - about the nature of reality, how we know things, ethics and fairness, understanding ourselves and others. This presentation for educators offers books and strategies for allowing children to explore philosophical questions.
