What's the Point of Philosophy?




Readers aged 9-12 will discover the wonders of philosophy in this highly illustrated, practical introduction to the subject

Travel down the road of wisdom to discover how to think about a series of philosophical problems, how to defend your opinions on them, and how to evaluate the opinions of others.

Why is philosophy important? What's so great about it? Take a leap into the world of philosophy and discover questions about life, the universe, and human behaviour that great thinkers have pondered throughout history, and which are still being asked today.

Philosophical ideas affect our day-to-day lives in ways that you might not expect. But understanding these ideas can be daunting - even for adults! If you want to learn how to argue the case for animal rights, why the concept of equality has many sides, or even what the theories are about why humans exist at all, What's the Point of Philosophy? is the place to start.

By slowly unravelling arguments to unpack complex theories, What's the Point of Philosophy? allows you to connect with ideas in a new and exciting way. If you never stop asking 'why?', this is the book for you!

This book is about how philosophy has changed the world, one crazy idea at a time, and it is guaranteed to inspire, surprise, amuse, and entertain everybody who picks it up.
