Wittgenstein's Rhinoceros

Wittgenstein's Rhinoceros

Armengaud Francoise

At its most basic, philosophy is about learning how to think about the world around us. It should come as no surprise, then, that children make excellent philosophers! Naturally inquisitive, pint-size scholars need little prompting before being willing to consider life's "big questions," however strange or impractical.

Plato & Co. introduces children and curious grown-ups to the lives and work of famous philosophers, from Descartes to Socrates, Einstein, Marx, and Wittgenstein. Each book in the series features an engaging and often funny story that presents basic tenets of philosophical thought alongside vibrant color illustrations. "Mister Wittgenstein! Stop looking for a horned beast in the middle of a Cambridge classroom!," an exasperated Bertrand Russell commands his pupil. But the young Ludwig Wittgenstein knows that, just because we don't see a rhinoceros, doesn't mean one may not be hiding where we least expect it. When war breaks out in Europe, Ludwig is recruited for a top-secret mission. Alas, no one is able to make sense of rhino-loving philosopher's notebooks. What could he possibly mean by so many seemingly nonsensical statements? Plato & Co.'s clear approach and charming illustrations make this series the perfect addition to any little library.
