Product description

Review

"We need more philosophers in the world, now more than ever! This accessible and entertaining book is a wonderful way to start them young. It is sure to engage the curiosity and imagination of children and inspire them to pursue the most important questions about themselves, their lives, and the world around them." -- Steven Nadler, Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Dr. Kaye has written an engaging book that combines thoughtful philosophical questions on a wide range of topics with brief profiles of philosophers from ancient times to the present. Young and old will enjoy exploring the wide range of ideas presented in this colorful and informative book." --Wendy C. Turgeon, author of Philosophical Adventures with Fairy Tales

"Big Thinkers and Big Ideas is a great way to introduce children to philosophy. Clearly written and lusciously illustrated, this book integrates Western and non-Western answers to the big questions that have puzzled philosophers through the ages. The exercises at the end of each section will stimulate great discussions among children and their caregivers." --Thomas E. Wartenberg, senior research fellow in Philosophy, Mount Holyoke College

"Building on the success of Philosophy for Teens: Questioning Life's Big Ideas, Dr. Sharon Kaye's new book, Big Thinkers and Big Ideas: an Introduction to Eastern and Western Philosophy for Kids, artfully engages children in interrogating life's big questions. With a tone that is both accessible and hopeful, Kaye encourages youth to contemplate what is real, truthful, just, and good--and to make impactful decisions for their own lives and the world in accordance with their uniquely discerned values. As a mom, educator, and scholar of community-engaged teaching, research, and service, I highly recommend this book as a vehicle for educating the next generation of individuals whose ideas and ideals will shape the future of our local and global society." --Jennifer Merritt, MBA, PhD, Director of Community-based Learning, Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, Santa Clara University

Reviewed in the United States on 11 February 2021
I am thrilled with this book! My kids are older than ‘recommended’ yet they will still be able to read this book without being too bored, or feel they aren’t learning enough etc. it is well organized and well written, with seemingly little bias. I am looking forward to my own refresher course with this book!
Philosophy is the ultimate critical thinking exercise, and we don’t do enough of this today. We need to make sure our kids are learning how to think and question for themselves- and innovate, create, and discover new things. Overall, a perfect book for my needs, and one that should be read in schools too.
