The Philosophy Shop is a veritable emporium of philosophical puzzles and challenges to develop thinking in and out of the classroom.

Imagine a one-stop shop stacked to the rafters with everything you could ever want, to enable you to tap into young people's natural curiosity and get them thinking deeply. Well, this is it! Edited by philosophy in schools expert, Peter Worley and with contributions from philosophers from around the world, The Philosophy Shop is jam-packed with ideas to get anyone thinking philosophically from children and young people to adults. For use in the classroom, at after school clubs, in philosophy departments and philosophy groups or even for the lone reader, this book will appeal to anyone who likes to think. Take it on journeys and dip in; use it as a classroom starter activity, or for a full philosophical enquiry - it could even be used to steer pub, dinner party or family discussions away from the same old topics.

The proceeds of the book are going towards The Philosophy Foundation, a charity bringing philosophy to schools and communities.

This book is also available in paperback edition, ISBN 9781781352649.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Philosophy Shop won the Education Resources Award for Best Educational Book in 2012.Won the New England Book Festival 2012 Winner for Compilations/Anthologies category.Finalist for ForeWord Review Book of the Year 2012 Awards. Reviewed by Deborah Perron Tollefsen, Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy, University of Memphis.I used The Philosophy Shop with my third graders this spring and it worked really well. Third graders do well with exercises that involve tactile elements and this book offers a number of these. A very, very, nice collection that I found easy to use. I could flip through it and find a juicy philosophy bite with which to tempt their curious minds. Reviewed by Ian Tustin, lead teacher of religion and philosophy, Wadham School.Very impressed, 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. Reviewed by Jules Evans, author of Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations.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. Reviewed by Nigel Warburton, The Open University'This book should get anyone thinking.' Reviewed by John T Morris BA(Hons), MEd, MPhil, CertEd Director JTM Educational Consultants.This book is a timely and wel
