A Child at Heart

Presentation of the book

By Christopher Phillips


Christopher Phillips, author of the acclaimed bestseller Socrates Café: a Fresh Taste of Philosophy, will present his new book, A Child at Heart, on November 28, at the Sala Quetzal in the Biblioteca.

Weaving together philosophy, social science and neuroscience research, personal anecdotes and dialogues, A Child at Heart takes a radically different approach to the traditional boundaries between childhood and adulthood to reveal how we can achieve what the ancient Greeks called arete—all-around excellence—when we look to children and youth as a lodestar for our development.

In this groundbreaking, heavily researched, and highly engaging book, Phillips makes the provocative case that childhood isn’t merely a state of becoming while adulthood is one of being, as if we’ve “arrived” and reached the summit. His life-changing proposition is that if we embrace the defining qualities of youth, we’re not destined to become frail, dispirited, or unhinged; instead we’ll grow in a way defined by wonder, curiosity, imaginativeness, playfulness, and compassion—in essence, unlimited potential.
