Children are born philosophers, they ask some of the largest questions: about time, mortality, happiness and the meaning of life. Too often, this curiosity is not developed and as they grow, the questions fall away.
This book is designed to harness children’s spontaneous philosophical instinct and to develop it through introductions to some of the most vibrant and essential philosophical ideas from history. The book takes us to meet leading figures of philosophy from around the world and from all eras – and shows us how their ideas continue to matter including Buddha, Socrates, Aristotle, Simone de Beauvoir and more.
The book is filled with exercises and beautiful illustrations to bring the ideas of great thinkers to life.
