Philosophy Talk: K-12 Philosophy

January 3, 2011

Philosophy Talk, a weekly, one-hour radio series produced at Stanford University, taped a show about philosophy for children at the University of Washington that aired on December 19. The show involved a discussion by Philosophy Talk hosts Ken Taylor and John Perry, both philosophers at Stanford University, and guest Jana Mohr Lone from the Northwest Center for Philosophy for Children at the University of Washington, with 4th grade students from John Muir Elementary School in Seattle, that examined some classic philosophical questions about mind/body, personal identity, and the nature of happiness.
