Philosophy in Childrens’ Books


Once upon a time, there was a website called History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps, run by a man named Peter Adamson. On the website was a blog that Peter Adamson wrote. And on that blog, boys and girls, was a very nice collection of philosophical excerpts from childrens’ books. Take a look and live happily ever after. The end.

Thanks for this post.

I’d also like to recommend Ellen Duthie’s excellent blog ‘Story Philosophy: Picture book based philosophical discussions’ (available in both English and Spanish): http://StoryPhilosophy.blogspot.com.au/

Relatedly, I briefly maintained a blog called ‘Playground Philosopher: Finding the philosophy in picture-books’: http://PlaygroundPhilosopher.wordpress.com

I’ve continued blogging about doing philosophical enquiry with children at The Philosophy Club, and I welcome contacts from others who are interested in this kind of work!Report
