Abstract

In the world of Philosophy for Schools (P4C), Dr Phil Cam requires no introduction. As stated in a recent edition of Journal of Philosophy in Schools (Volume 5, Issue 2) that was dedicated to celebrating his work, ‘Philip Cam is an international authority on philosophy in schools who has been a pioneer in introducing philosophy and ethics into schools in Australia’ (D1’Olimpio& Peterson 2018, p. 1). Very simply, when Cam talks about P4C, people listen. As a result, I was hugely excited to receive a copy of his latest book Philosophical Inquiry: Combining the Tools of Philosophy with Inquiry-Based Teaching and Learning. The book forms part of a new series of philosophical books entitled Big Ideas for Young Thinkers, published by Rowman and Littlefield. The series is edited by Thomas E Wartenburg, who himself is a hugely significant figure in P4C.
