Just Think: Philosophy Puzzles for Children Aged 9 to 90 (Paperback) Philip West (author)
The book contains thirty philosophy puzzles aimed at intelligent children aged 9 to 14, plus their parents and teachers, including:
- Is it ever right to do something wrong?
- Is the world we see around us really there?
- Should everyone in society be paid the same?
- Is beauty just a matter of opinion?
- Are miracles possible?
Each starts with a discussion between an argumentative brother and sister, followed by what one or more philosophers have said on the topic, then supplementary questions with which to bamboozle family, friends and teachers. The second half of the book contains adult commentaries on each puzzle for those leading discussions at home or school.
