Passages from The Philosophy of Childhood

I think young children, even very young children, are at least genuinely moral agents. ~ Gareth Matthews, The Philosophy of Childhood


A child's naive question can awaken our sleeping imagination and sympathy, and even move us to take moral action. ~ Gareth Matthews, The Philosophy of Childhood


Children, in their simple directness, often bring us adults back to basics. ~ Gareth Matthews, The Philosophy of Childhood


Any developmental theory that rules out, on purely theoretical grounds, even the possibility that we adults may occasionally have something to learn, morally, from a child is, for that reason, defective; it is also morally offensive. ~ Gareth Matthews, The Philosophy of Childhood
