Children: animals or persons?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a great deal written about children in educational, psychological and sociological terms, but very little has been written about the concept of 'child' from a philosophical perspective. The aim of this inquiry is to come to some acceptable definition of the concept 'child'; I want to determine what exactly is a child.
