As a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Michigan and father of two young sons, Scott Hershovitz knows there’s nothing childish about the way children think about the world. Some of the best philosophers in the world can be found in the most unlikely places: in preschools and playgrounds. They gather to debate questions about metaphysics and morality, even though they’ve never heard the words, and can’t tie their shoelaces. He joins us to demonstrate that we shouldn’t just support kids in their philosophical adventures: we should join them, so that we can rekindle our own innate, childlike wonder at the world. We’d all be better, more discerning thinkers for it.
