Topic for Spring 2020: The Philosophy of the Play
Maria Montessori wrote that “the work of the child is play.” But is play also the work of all humans, child or adult? In this seminar students will examine the concept of play by reading philosophers on play, observing children and adults at play, and considering the role of play in human flourishing. Students will engage in discussion, reflective writing, and collaborative projects.
