Athens Philosophy Café in English
Our Philosophy Café is a monthly meeting to discuss some of the most challenging questions of philosophy at Lexi-Logos, a charming Language & Culture Center in Plaka, downtown Athens.
Wednesday Dec. 11 2013 (8-9 pm): “Philosophy with Children”
Is philosophy suitable for children or is it only for grown-ups, as tradition suggests?
Can children develop critical thinking skills with a simple bedtime story?
An open discussion for parents and teachers.
Bring your inner child!
Alaskan raised, Cornish-Jewish, Athens-based author and illustrator Tamar Levi has spent her life triangulated between desk, bookshelf and easel.
Beginning by writing and illustrating whilst studying in London and Cambridge, Tamar also consulted for a leading multinational company. She's now come full circle, back to where she belongs, writing and illustrating again. She has particularly enjoyed working on award winning books that bring philosophy to the primary school classroom.
Tamar currently researches a PhD in English and Creative Writing while living with her Greek partner and their cross-eyed cat.
