Description


What is love? Is lying always wrong? Is beauty a matter of fact, or a matter of taste? What is discrimination?

The answers to these questions, and more, are examined in Philosophy for Teens: Questioning Life's Big Ideas, an in-depth, teenager-friendly look at the philosophy behind everyday issues. The authors examine some of life's biggest topics, such as:
  • lying,
  • cheating,
  • love,
  • beauty,
  • the role of government,
  • hate, and
  • prejudice.

Both sides of the debates are covered on every issue, with information from some of the world's most noted philosophers included in a conversational style that teenagers will love. Each chapter includes discussions questions, thought experiments, exercises and activities, and community action steps to help students make reasoned, informed decisions about some of life's greatest debates.

Examining life's big ideas and discovering their own opinions have never been easier or more exciting for today's teens.

Grades 7-12
