Le cercle des petits philosophes

By Cécile Denjean

What is the meaning of life? Why do we live? What is death? What is love?

The philosopher and best-selling author Frédéric Lenoir, asked these questions to children from 7 to 10 years old, during philosophical workshops he conducted in two elementary schools over the course of a year. With him, we share the thoughts of these children, who confront the complexity of the world and the violence of their emotions.

We marvel at the ability of children to seize existential questions, to argue, to debate … and to become little philosophers!
