“Life Must Be Lived As Play”

Kids Playing with Hula Hoops“Life must be lived as play.” – Plato
This quote, attributed to the ancient Greek philosopher, is profound in its simplicity. When coupled with the unattributed quote “Kids make no separation between fun and learning,” we begin to see the profound potential that play holds as a learning modality. Why would one of humanity’s greatest thinkers place so much emphasis on play? Because he was aware of the truth of the second quote, not just as it applies to children, but as it applies to learners of all ages. A life of play, embodying the six elements of play, helps foster a culture of lifelong learning that can propel individuals and society to great new heights of learning and understanding in all areas. As author G.K. Chesterton put it, “The true object of all human life is play.” //
