Imagine a one-stop shop stacked to the rafters with everything you could ever want to tap into young people?s natural curiosity and get them thinking deeply. Well, this is it! Edited by professional philosopher Peter Worley from The Philosophy Foundation, this is packed with ideas, stimuli, thought experiments, activities, short stories, pictures, and questions to get young people thinking philosophically.
Primarily aimed at teachers to use as a stimuli for philosophical enquiries in the classroom to get them thinking from the off, it can also be used by parents for some great family thinking or anyone fed up of being told what to think (or urged not to think) and who wants a real neurological workout.

The proceeds of the book are going towards The Philosophy Foundation Charity. What better time to have this available than World Philosophy Day on November 15, 2012?

“The Philosophy Shop is on a mission to bring philosophy into our schools. This book brilliantly shows how accessible philosophy is, and how fun and mind-expanding it can be, for any ages.?
Jules Evans, author of Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations, co-organiser of the London Philosophy Club and policy director of the Centre for the History of the Emotions
“I?ve just started a philosophy-based scheme of learning for my year nines next year, and this book will be a massive part of that. The ‘works well with? suggestions for each exercise make translating the ideas in the book into a well structured sequence of lessons a joy. I completely agree that introducing core philosophical issues to students with a ‘hook? that grabs them is the best way to approach the subject. I do the same with my A level groups and it enthuses them to approach the core issue in creative ways. A very practical tool for teachers.?
Ian Tustin, lead teacher of religion and philosophy, Wadham School
“This book should get anyone thinking.?
