Show Notes

Might an education for children featuring philosophy be one of the keys to developing a more civil society? Prof. Amy Reed-Sandoval (UNLV) discusses how wonder is integral to philosophy and how this complements a child’s natural inclination to know more about the world and others. But Philosophy for Children is not just about children. Adults can learn a great deal about their own perceptions on meaning, life, and the importance of play.
