Christopher Phillips, Ph.D., the creator of the Socrates Cafe initiative (of which there are a number in Maine), joins us to discuss his new project - childing, which asks adults to look at the powers of reasoning, empathy, curiosity and problem solving found in children in order for both children and adults to develop fully.  Joining our conversation will be Marietta McCarty (via ISDN), author of Little Big Minds - Sharing Philosophy with Kids.

Guests:  Christopher Phillips, author and educator. He is best known for his 2001 book Socrates Café. Public Radio International called Phillips the "Johnny Appleseed of Philosophy."
