Samenvatting

What does it mean to be good? Why do people die? What is friendship? Children enter the world full of questions and wrestle with deep, thoughtful issues, even if they do not always wonder them aloud. Many parents have the desire to discuss philosophical ideas with their children, but are unsure how to do so. The Philosophical Child offers parents guidance on how to gently approach philosophical questions with children of all ages. Jana Mohr Lone argues that for children to mature emotionally, they must develop their desire and ability to think abstractly about themselves and their experiences. This book suggests easy ways that parents can engage with their children's philosophical questions and help them develop their philosophical selves.

Recensie(s)

University of Washington's Jana Mohr Lone, director of the Northwest Center for Philosophy for Children, gives her advice to parents on how to approach philosophical questions with children. The book offers guidance on answering abstract questions such as What is happiness? and What does it mean to be real? * The Seattle Times * We owe it to our children and to the future of our world to heed the lessons of this book. Call it the work of real philosophy, or call it simply the joyful work of nourishing the love of Truth and the Good. Whatever we call it, this warm and wise guide shows us why we must bring philosophy to our children (and, at the same time, to ourselves). -- Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy Jana Mohr Lone is at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to support philosophical inquiry among children. In this book she draws on years of experience with children, teachers, and parents to offer--in accessible, lucid prose--workable suggestions for how to inspire children to philosophical exploration. The book could just as well have been, What to Expect When They're Reflecting, and deserves to be mandatory reading for anyone teaching or raising a curious child. -- Mitch Green, University of Virginia
