Review:

For teachers familiar with the Community of Inquiry approach used in many philosophy for children activities, this book is worth examining. It provides an alternative approach that focuses directly on philosopical issues as raised by noted philosophers. In the hands of gifted teachers, White's apprach to philosophy for children, especially for gifted students, may encourage a childhood study of philosophy more akin to philosophy as done in many college classrooms. This can be a plus as long as the disparity between intellect and character is avoided.

--James S. Kelly, Department of Philosophy, Miami University, Oxford OH, Teaching Philosophy

About the Author:

David A. White has a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Toronto and has taught philosophy in colleges and universities since 1967. He has written 10 books and more than 50 articles in philosophy, literary criticism, and educational theory. In 1985, he received a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies to study the function of myth in Plato's philosophy. From 1993 through 2007, he taught programs in philosophy for the gifted centers and various magnet schools of the Chicago Public School system, the International Baccalaureate program at Lincoln Park High School in Chicago, and Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development, grades 4 through 9. White is an adjunct associate professor in the philosophy department of DePaul University. White is married to a philosopher, Mary Jeanne Larrabee, and has two sons, Daniel and Colin, both of whom, as demonstrated by their advanced knowledge of mathematics and the principles of computer science, are much smarter than he is.
