PHL 304 - Philosophy of Childhood


To be human is to be educated according to the beliefs and practices of a particular place and time, and our understanding of ourselves as human beings and our place in the universe is predicated upon our introduction to it through the world we inhabit as children. The aim of this course is to consider philosophical perspectives on childhood insofar as they offer insight into the human condition of belatedness to the social order that gives our lives meaning.
