Summary

The book for inquisitive children with big ideas and busy brains.

Studies show that children ask caregivers 300 questions a day...

This book teaches children to train their busy brains and think outside the box. Get lost for hours exploring puzzling questions that have stumped thinkers for years. More importantly, discover your truth by reading about a diverse range of thinkers. Drawing on influences from ancient Greeks right up to modern-day American writers, philosophy is re-imagined in this book.

Relate to the real-life experiences, explore big ideas from a range of thinkers, and decide where you stand on the issue at hand. For example, try to recall your earliest memory. Can you remember a lot or a little? Do memories make us who we are? Or do we pick and choose them to suit who we are? This is a multi-layered book to be explored again and again, revealing new opinions on every read.

Extra info in the book includes a manifesto for talking about difficult topics and managing disagreements, a glossary of terms, a timeline of key thinkers, and an index of themes. 

Chapters are organized around questions, which include:

  • Who am I? 
  • What is race?
  • What is gender?
  • What happens when we die?
  • What is right and wrong?
  • What is justice?
  • What is memory?

A world-expanding book to get lost in: either individually, or as a family.
