The Philosophical Child, Paperback / softback Book


What does it mean to be good? Why do people die? What is friendship? Children enter the world full of questions and wrestle with deep, thoughtful issues, even if they do not always wonder them aloud.

Many parents have the desire to discuss philosophical ideas with their children, but are unsure how to do so.

The Philosophical Child offers parents guidance on how to gently approach philosophical questions with children of all ages.

Jana Mohr Lone argues that for children to mature emotionally, they must develop their desire and ability to think abstractly about themselves and their experiences.

This book suggests easy ways that parents can engage with their children's philosophical questions and help them develop their "philosophical selves."
