This work traces the connections between childhood and philosophy along multi-disciplinary pathways in the humanities. The first six chapters explore the significance of childhood in Western culture and modal subjectivity in the context, not just of philosophy, but of social and cultural history. The second part of the book offers sections of transcripts from two group dialogues on the phenomenon of conflict.
