Philosophy for Children

In quoting Emerson, about poetry saying “more with less” the latter day New England Transcendentalist, Buckminster Fuller (great nephew of Margaret Fuller, Dial editor and international correspondent) circles what we might call the “child’s eye view”; less cluelessly naive, or uninformed, than penetrating, to the point.

Children see through a lot of adult obfuscations sometimes. Unpoetic language comes caked in cruft.
