Farmer Philosopher; Ancient Childhoods

Mark Golden discusses childhood in ancient Greece and ways in which children were prepared for adult life in that society through socialization and acculturation. He is the author of Children and Childhood in Classical Athens.

In the second segment [13:15], Marjorie Grene, the author of books about existentialism, Aristotle, and philosophy and science, focuses in this segment on philosophy and science, and comments on her own views of the discipline of philosophy.

At the time of these interviews, Golden, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1987-88), was professor classics at the University of Winnipeg.

Grene was professor emerita of philosophy at the University of California at Davis.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
