Children Are Natural Philosophers

Children ask a lot of questions, and too often we dismiss them instead of embracing their wonder. Jana Mohr Lone is director and founder of the University of Washington’s Center for Philosophy for Children. She joins host Krys Boyd to talk about why children offer unique viewpoints on life’s philosophical mysteries, and why it’s important to take them seriously. Her article “Philosophy with Children” was published by Aeon and her new book is “Seen and Not Heard: Why Children’s Voices Matter“.
