Telos on the Trails Takes Kids’ Philosophy Lessons to Michigan State Parks

Searching for Telos goes outdoors this summer to explore the intersections of nature and philosphy.

Allyson Jones teaches philosophy for children at the Boggs School and in a series called Searching for Telos at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. This spring and summer she will be leading 5 to 15 year old philosophy students to Michigan State Parks for Telos on the Trails. She said the walks will use philosophers as their inspiration.
