Big Thinkers and Big Ideas: An Introduction to Eastern and Western Philosophy for Kids
Have your kids ever asked you about things like whether or not what we see is real? Or why some actions are considered good, and some are bad? If they have, then they might be on their way to becoming a philosopher. Big Thinkers and Big Ideas is a book about philosophy for kids ages 8 to 12 that will teach them about the concepts and people that are important in philosophy, so they can start exercising their mind and looking at the world with new eyes.
With this philosophy for kids book, they’ll learn about different kinds of philosophy from all over the world and philosophers like Socrates, Pythagoras, Ayn Rand, and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Help them practice thinking deeply and come up with their own solutions to complex problems.

- The big four―Read about the four main branches of philosophy: metaphysics (reality), epistemology (knowledge), logic (critical thinking), and ethics (values).
- What do you think?―The questions inside will encourage kids to build better arguments and talk to their friends and family about meaningful topics.
- Just the first step―If philosophy for kids is interesting for your child, this book is a great primer for more advanced philosophy books.
