Abstract

Those with at least in passing interest in Philosophy for Children will be aware of the work of Philip Cam. Cam’s corpus of texts have provided educators with countless insights, activities and resources for developing philosophical investigations and thinking with young people. Philosophy park: A beginner’s guide to great philosophers and their ideas is a significant addition to this body of work. Tackling the complex ideas of leading philosophers in the Western tradition, Cam has achieved something that is often rather rare—the ability to convey complex ideas in an accessible and engaging way. The main tool employed is the use of stories, each of which draws out a central idea within the thought of the philosopher or school of philosophers at hand.
