Why we believe in nurturing philosophical conversations in young people?

Author Clare-Rose Trevelyan, the founder of Red Wool Editions, gives an overview to children why she wrote the Young Philosophers Series.

Philosophy provides a space for young people to wonder out loud, together with parents, teachers, friends … about the meanings of life and all of the themes, riddles and complex contradictions that come with it. It is so important to do together because one (of many) key realisations is, that we can disagree on somethings and agree on others, and yet still be as one, still love one another.

Fake Dictionaries & Real Purpose

What if you were able to invent new meanings to old words all the time? This is an A to Z experience like no other. At some time, someone somewhere made up the word submarine. Somehow. This leads us to question meaning, interpretation and the agency we have in the world to make up stuff.
