Author(s): Duane Armitage; Maureen McQuerry; Robin Rosenthal (Illustrator)

Early Learning

Answering life's big questions for little children, this board book explains Descartes' beliefs about imagination and empathy in a simple, accessible way.

Even little children can become philosophers by asking big questions about the world around them. Descartes believed that the ability to imagine is what makes us our true selves. In Imagination with Descartes, this idea is explained for the youngest thinkers, from the uniqueness of imagination to understanding other people's point of view. This book will inspire little ones to have exciting thoughts and conversations about these big ideas.

'A philosopher is a person who loves wisdom.
Wisdom means knowing things that help you live better and be happy.'
