Abstract:

The Philosopher's Child is a collection of 11 contemporary essays (including 6 contributions especially written for this volume), each of which examines the views of a different philosopher (Aristotle, Firestone, Hobbes, Kant, Locke, Mill, Rawls, Rousseau, Socrates, the Stoics, and Wittgenstein) on the topic of children and childhood. Each of the contributing authors to this ground-breaking volume is a specialist in the area of the philosopher he or she considers, and they offer the reader both the opportunity to review the thoughts of these important thinkers on a subject that is fast becoming an issue of great urgency and the chance to examine (for the first time) those thoughts within a critical context.
