I like this a lot. I too learnt much from child play while my son was growing up and the edited book on fictions is dedicated to him. It takes some courage to learn from children, and more so to go on to say so. My early interest in fictions in science was denounced on similar grounds - it was the ultimate sin to suggest that science and philosophy may trade in fictional games, and did not care 'just about truth', and it was certainly an indictment of your 'seriousness' as a philosopher and science scholar. Happily the tide has turned quite a bit and there is nowadays genuine philosophical interest in fiction making in the sciences. Nevertheless I suspect the dominant establishment is still radically opposed, and those in the profession whose are driven by self-promotion are still very careful to stay right out of these discussions. Good for you to be brave!
