Children are, in many ways, born philosophers. This is a book designed to harness their spontaneous philosophical interest and develop it.
Without prompting children often ask some of the largest questions about time, mortality, happiness, and the meaning of life. Yet all too often their inborn curiosity is not developed and, with age, the questions fall away. This book addresses some of their more complex questions by introducing accessible philosophical concepts from 25 famous thinkers, contextualized in relatable everyday scenarios. Presented in an interactive question and answer format, this 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.
