Inspire animated discussions of questions that concern kids—and all of us—with these innovative, interactive books. Open your students' minds to the wonders of philosophy. The best-selling Philosophy for Kids series offers young people the opportunity to become acquainted with the wonders of philosophy. Packed with exciting activities arranged around the topics of values, knowledge, reality, critical thinking, and more, these books can be used individually or by the whole class. Each activity allows students to increase their understanding of philosophical concepts and issues and enjoy themselves at the same time.

In addition to learning about a challenging subject, students philosophizing in a classroom setting will sharpen their ability to think critically about philosophical questions. Experiencing the enjoyment of philosophical thought enhances a young person's appreciation for the importance of reasoning throughout the traditional curriculum of subjects. Each book includes activities, teaching tips, a glossary of terms, and suggestions for further reading.

Philosophy for Kids allows students to grapple with the questions philosophers have discussed since the ancient Greeks. Questions include: "Who are your friends?," "Can computers think?," "Can something logical not make sense?," and "Can you think about nothing?" Young minds will find these questions to be both entertaining and informative.

The Examined Life delves deeper into the philosophical questions kids (and adults) care about deeply. Through vibrant discussions and debate, the book offers ways teachers can help students grapple with age-old questions about the nature of friendship (Aristotle), time (Augustine), knowledge (Plato), existence of God (Aquinas), perception (Berkeley), freedom and society (Rousseau), and many more.
