Description: ‘Adventure in Thinking’ is the perfect introduction to philosophy and a really useful tool to encourage children to question: why do they do what they do, why they feel the way they feel, why they think what they think. It also seeks to encourage children to ask adventurous questions like: ‘why is there something rather than nothing?’, ‘Is what I see and experience real or an illusion?’, ‘Can I know anything with certainty?’ Harnessing the child’s natural curiosity, ‘Adventures in Thinking’ takes through travellers along a journey of the mind, discovering themes such as wonder, questioning, thinking, dreaming, body, soul, courage, nature, technology, art, time, love, knowledge, wisdom and silence.
