9781465424488: Heads Up Philosophy

The second installment in DK's new Heads Up series, Heads Up Philosophy addresses the issues and theories that are most intriguing and relevant to the curious minds of teens — making a difficult topic easier to comprehend. Questions such as "What is knowledge?" "What is reality?" "What is the mind?" and "What's right and wrong?" are all addressed, offering big ideas, simply explained. Written and designed specifically for the teen market, Heads Up Philosophy combines challenging but clear text with cool graphic illustrations that clarify and explain theories and arguments.

Biography spreads cover the famous quotes of great philosophers including Socrates, Aristotle, Friedrich Nietzsche, Epicurus, Plato, and Thomas Aquinas, while major theories and debates including epistemology, metaphysics, and ideologies are also explained. Heads Up Philosophy also includes case study panels, diagrams, and real world spreads to show how philosophical theories relate to everyday life.

Making a difficult subject more approachable, Heads Up Philosophy is designed to provoke, entertain, and stimulate young minds.

From School Library Journal :

Gr 9 Up—This basic overview of philosophy will draw readers in with its dynamic design, starting with the eye-catching cover, which includes quotes such as René Descartes's famous "I think, therefore I am" to pique interest. The book starts with a brief introduction and a chart that answers the question "What Do Philosophers Do?" Weeks organizes the material thematically by the branch of philosophy being highlighted ("What Is Reasoning?," "What Is the Mind?"), making the text ideal for browsing. Each section uses different font sizes, graphics and images, sidebars, and inset text boxes, enabling the author to convey a great deal of information without overwhelming readers. Weeks also integrates biographical sketches of selected male and female philosophers (Socrates, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Hannah Ardent) with intriguing facts about each figure and their personal struggles, which makes the subject much more engaging for students. The text becomes repetitive at times, particularly in the first two chapters. However, Weeks maintains interest overall. A directory of famous philosophers is included, but there is no bibliography. A solid introduction to the subject.—Hilary Writt, Sullivan University, Lexington, KYp

Review :

"...[A]n excellent addition to any teen's library". – Examiner.com

"Whether used to supplement government, science, math, or psychology courses — or to explore the universe's mysteries — students will find this a valuable resource." – Booklist

"The design leaps with life: varied typography, graphic illustrations, sidebars with interesting facts and historical perspectives, intriguing quotes that could become posters. Credit should be given to the author for demonstrating the relevance of philosophy to modern life, allowing the reader to dip in and out at will." – VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)

"Your child might have outgrown the photo driven nonfiction books DK is known for, but the new teen line picks up where curious minds are left with new titles appealing to teens." – Parenting OC Magazine
