Imagine a one-stop shop stacked to the rafters with everything you could ever want to tap into young people's natural curiosity and get them thinking deeply. Well, this is it Edited by professional philosopher Peter Worley from The Philosophy Foundation, this is packed with ideas, stimuli, thought experiments, activities, short stories, pictures, and questions to get young people thinking philosophically.

Primarily aimed at teachers to use as a stimuli for philosophical enquiries in the classroom to get them thinking from the off, it can also be used by parents for some great family thinking or anyone fed up of being told what to think (or urged not to think) and who wants a real neurological workout.

Contributors include: A.C. Grayling, Peter Adamson, Angela Hobbs, Ben Jeffery, David Birch, Phillip Cowell, and Peter Cave.

The proceeds of the book are going towards The Philosophy Foundation Charity. What better time to have this available than World Philosophy Day on November 15, 2012?

Peter Worley has recently been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He read philosophy at University College London and Birkbeck College, and is currently studying for a PhD at King's College London.
