Review

I've just started a philosophy based scheme of learning for my year nines next year, and this book will be a massive part of that. The 'works well with' suggestions for each exercise make translating the ideas in the book into a well-structured sequence of lessons a joy. I completely agree that introducing core philosophical issues to students with a 'hook' that grabs them is the best way to approach the subject. I do the same with my A level groups and it enthuses them to approach the core issue in creative ways. You then get a second bout of learning when they compare their own approach to those of famous philosophers. A very practical tool for RE teachers. --Ian Tustin, lead teacher of religion and philosophy, Wadham School

The Philosophy Shop is on a mission to bring philosophy into our schools. This book brilliantly shows how accessible philosophy is, and how fun and mind-expanding it can be, for any ages. --Jules Evans, author of Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations.

This book should get anyone thinking. --Nigel Warburton - The Open University

From the Inside Flap


Imagine that one day, as you pass a familiar row of shops, your eye catches sight of a shop you've not seen before. In fact, you're quite sure it simply wasn't there yesterday! You investigate further and discover that the shop is no ordinary shop. Inside is shelf upon shelf of philosophical ideas, thoughts, puzzles and problems made accessible and enjoyable by having been wrapped up in stories, poems, activities and thought-experiments to tickle and tantalise the mind into thoughtfulness and wakefulness.
Start Question: Would you go into The Philosophy Shop?
Questions to take you further:
What have you got to lose by taking the time to think?
What have you got to gain by taking the time to think?
What is thinking? (Central Question)
Is it good to think?
Works well with:
Groups: in classrooms or colleges, reading/discussion groups etc.
Lone readers: on journeys, on the bedside table, next to the loo!
Source: Socrates in the marketplace of Athens.
Philosophy: Plato's Apology and The Republic book 1.
This book is suitable for adults and children.
