How do we know things? Are you really in control? What is beauty? Can we prove that God does or does not exist? Why be good? Wow, talk about some big topics! No really, let’s talk about some big topics. As an introduction to philosophy, young readers are encouraged to think about what is important to them. Learning to think systematically is a skill that we all need. It helps you to think for yourself instead of believing everything you are told. I love the idea of the family discussions that can come out of a book like this one. It is a guide on how to formulate your own response to a big question, so when asked about God, it does not present an answer, only the question. 126 pgs, pb. ~Sara

Accessible and informative, this comprehensive introduction to philosophy will help readers understand how it can help everyone with their day-to-day life, with their life's purpose, with their personal happiness.
