From School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—This comprehensive overview offers students an opportunity to explore the study of knowledge, reality, and existence without becoming overwhelmed by complex language or overcomplicated theories. Each chapter is framed by a philosophical question that focuses on basic ideas about the natural world, the self, the senses, morality, or society ("Is My Mind Different from My Body?"; "How Do I Know If I'm Awake or Dreaming?"). The book presents comprehensible explanations of metaphysical ideas and provides brief biographies of philosophers such as Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, and John Locke. The organization allows for casual browsing as well as focused research. While the information is concise, there is plenty of depth to each topic, which will encourage readers to dig into the material and inspire them to seek out further research. The design is effective, with color-coded chapters that allow for easy navigation, and the color scheme is vibrant and eye-catching. VERDICT This oversize beginner's guide will keep readers turning pages; a great resource.—Lindsey Dawson, Saint John's Catholic Prep, Frederick, MD
