A collection of the most important ideas in the history of thought, packed with illustrations to engage readers and stimulate discussion.

The perfect book for young readers looking to explore some of life's biggest questions.

Thousands of years ago, ancient philosophers asked some important questions- What is real? , What is everything made of? , Why does evil exist? , and What can I know? These questions have gone on to spark passionate debates about our existence and how we understand the world around us.

In this engaging and accessible introduction to philosophy, readers aged 11+ will be introduced to a variety of philosophical ideas through the teachings of Plato, Confucius, Simone de Beauvoir, and many more.

Vibrant, reader-friendly illustrations bring the history of ideas and thinking to life, and provide topics for reflection and debate. With biographies of the most influential philosophers from around the world, young readers will explore the questions that have been fundamental to the development of scientific study, logical thinking, religious beliefs, freedom in society, and much more. Thought experiments peppered throughout will help to connect readers with the theories presented so they can apply them to their own lives.
