Book Description

"

The Philosophy for Teens series offers 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, in these casual and engaging books, written directly for and field-tested with teenagers.

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

In Philosophy for Teens, readers explore questions like: ""What is love?"", ""Is lying always wrong?,"" ""Is beauty a matter of fact, or a matter of taste?,"" and ""What is discrimination?"" In More Philosophy for Teens, readers explore questions like: ""Is knowledge the greatest virtue?,"" ""What is it like to be somebody else?,"" ""What if tomorrow never comes?,"" and ""Is the world around us real?"" Your students will be asking these challenging questions and more after reading and completing the activities.

Each book includes a useful teacher's guide and glossary, and is organized topically, rather than historically, in order to emphasize the connection between ideas. Relevant historical details are offset from the main text. Each chapter illustrates two philosophical positions on an issue for students to explore and features comprehension questions, exercises, and references for further reading.
