Children's Book of Philosophy

Author DK
Learn to think big and tackle life's trickiest questions, such as "What am I here for?" and "Who decides what's right and wrong?".

Children’s Book of Philosophy is a perfect introduction to the great thinkers who’ve tried to make sense of the world. From ancient times to modern day, people have asked questions such as "Who am I?", "Is the world real?", and "Is it ever right to tell a lie?". Meet famous philosophers from history including Socrates, Confucius, Immanuel Kant, Simone de Beauvoir, and many others who have studied the complex issues of everyday life. 

Using simple text and fun illustrations to get your mind working, Children’s Book of Philosophy will make big ideas easy to understand. Examine the problems that have puzzled people for hundreds, or even thousands, of years – and ponder your way through them in clear and logical stages. 

The book's lively approach is designed to encourage children to start thinking for themselves and to show them that anyone can be a philosopher.
We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
 
From first words to the Big Bang, from the wonders of nature to city adventures, you will find expert knowledge, hours of fun and endless inspiration in the pages of our books.
