Dialogues with Children by Gareth B. Matthews

Book Description

Every week for a year, a professional philosopher and eight children at a school in Edinburgh met to craft stories reflecting philosophical problems. The philosopher, Gareth B. Matthews, believes that children are far more able and eager to think abstractly than adults generally recognize. This book has considerable implications for education and for our understanding of the range of relationships between adults and children. With the example of these dialogues, Matthews invites parents, teachers, and all adults to be open to those moments when they can share with children the pleasures of joint philosophical discovery.

A survey that takes readers on a thought-provoking tour through the life and work of Augustine. It explores fresh insights into one of antiquity's most important philosophers.

Socratic Perplexity by Gareth B. Matthews Socratic Perplexity, Paperback (October 2003)

Gareth Matthews suggests that we can better understand the nature of philosophical inquiry if we recognise the central role played by perplexity. Matthews examines the intriguing shifts in Plato's attitude to perplexity and suggests that these may represent a course of philosophical development that philosophers follow even today.
