Philosophy Wire: Children. The greatest philosophers.

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-10-25]:

A child* sees the moon. Then moments later it sees the moon again. “Another moon!” it cries out. A child is in the elevator with its parents. She sees herself in the mirror on the ceiling along with her mom and dad. “We are up!” she cries out.

Grownups might think she is wrong and confused.
But she is right in everything she says.
We see what we think. What we think exists.

As simple as that.

Children. The greatest philosophers.
The cleanest mirror. Yes, it is us up there...
