The perfect book for young readers looking for answers to some of life's biggest questions. Thousands of years ago, ancient philosophers asked some important questions: "Where do we come from?", "What is right and what is wrong?", "Am I real?", and "What is the point of existence?" These questions have gone on to spark passionate debates about our existence and how we understand the world around us. In this fun and engaging introduction to philosophy, listeners aged 11+ will be introduced to a variety of philosophical ideas through the teachings of Plato, Confucius, Simone de Beauvoir, and many more. Philosophy: A Children's Encyclopedia brings the history of ideas and thinking to life, from metaphysics to moral imperatives. With biographies of the most influential philosophers from around the world, young listeners will explore the questions and answers that have been fundamental to the development of scientific study, logical thinking, religious beliefs, laws and governance, and much more. Thought experiments peppered throughout will help to connect listeners with the ideas presented so they can apply them to their own lives. © 2020 Dorling Kindersley Ltd © 2020 DK Audio
