Children can discuss philosophical issues in Philosophy for Kids with Simon Critchley on March 19 at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central branch.

Philosophy for Kids is led by scholar and New York Times columnist Simon Critchley and his students offering a series of discussions where children talk about worldly issues.

The event celebrates kids’ unabashed curiosity, and engages them in deep conversations about subjects ranging from friendships to society, and other key themes in philosophy. No parents allowed! For children 5 to 12 years old.

The event is part of the cultural services of the French Embassy and French Institute Alliance Française’s second annual TILT Kids Festival.

The festival features a wide range of new works for families by celebrated French and international artists.

Philosophy for Kids, March 19, 2 to 2:30 pm for children 6 to 8 years old; 3 to 3:30 pm for children 8 to 10; and 4 to 4:30 pm for children 10 to 12. Free.
