In a newly-published article for The Conversation, Prof. Fiocco reflects on the importance of life-long inquisitiveness, explaining Why questions (good and bad) matter.

The personal and social value of ongoing inquiry, as laid out in Prof. Fiocco's piece, harmonizes with two projects developed by the Center for Knowledge, Technology & Society. The Anteater Virtues project argues that curiosity is one of four intellectual virtues that all UCI Anteaters should endeavor to cultivate for themselves. The TH!NK project confirms the educational importance and value of teaching philosophy to adolescent school children.
