One Response to “Philosophy for children”

  1. This is something new for me. I realise that a child’s perspective is original, unfettered by our social conventions but perspective and philosophy are not the same and I wonder if there is a need for some social interaction and “life experience” before a child can truly philosophise. I suppose there can be true philosophy at different levels, can ther?
