This book series features contemporary theories: the texts are written by philosophers and thinkers who see themselves emphatically in the sphere between philosophical debate and those urgently acute questions as posed in today’s wider debate.
At its most basic, philosophy is about learning how to think about the world around us. It should come as no surprise, then, that children make excellent philosophers! Naturally inquisitive, pint-size scholars need little prompting before being willing to consider life’s “big questions,” however strange or impractical. Plato & Co. introduces children—and curious grown-ups—to the lives and work of famous philosophers, from Descartes to Socrates, Einstein, Marx, and Wittgenstein. Each book in the series features an engaging—and often funny—story that presents basic tenets of philosophical thought alongside vibrant color illustrations.
Plato & Co.’s clear approach and charming illustrations make this series the perfect addition to any little library.
