Dialogues with Children by Gareth B. Matthews
Book DescriptionEvery week for a year, a professional philosopher and eight children at a school in Edinburgh met to craft stories reflecting philosophical problems. The philosopher, Gareth B. Matthews, believes that children are far more able and eager to think abstractly than adults generally recognize. This book has considerable implications for education and for our understanding of the range of relationships between adults and children. With the example of these dialogues, Matthews invites parents, teachers, and all adults to be open to those moments when they can share with children the pleasures of joint philosophical discovery.
