Summary
  • "Philosophical accounts of childhood have tended to derive from Plato and Aristotle, who portrayed children as unreasonable and incomplete in terms of lacking formal and final causes and ends. Despite much rhetoric concerning either the sinfulness or purity of children (as in Puritanism and Romanticism respectively), the assumption that children are marginal has endured. Modern theories, including recent interpretations of neuroscience, have re-enforced this sense of children's incompleteness
  • This monograph seeks to overturn this philosophical tradition. It develops instead a 'fully semiotic' perspective, arguing that in so far as children are no more or less interpreters of the world than adults, they are no more or less reasoning agents. This has radical implications, particularly for the question of how we seek to educate children. The study will examine critically the bases for the beliefs that more and more compulsory education is necessarily a social good, and that childhood must be grown out of and left behind."--Jacket
