Philosophical Adventures with Fairy Tales

Philosophical Adventures with Fairy Tales PDF Book Detail Author: Wendy C. Turgeon
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
ISBN: 1475853246
Category : Education
Languages : en
Pages : 175

Book Description
Often we think of fairy tales as written for little children as entertainment. But fairy tales are much more and invite young and old alike to reflect on serious philosophical themes. This book offers readers opportunities to engage in philosophical dialogue over a range of important concepts such as truth, goodness, beauty, fairness, and many more. The prompts for these reflections will be fairy tales. In addition to offering guidelines for building a philosophical community with children and young people, the reader will read familiar stories with fresh eyes and encounter new ideas with surprising connections to contemporary issues and concerns. Parents will enjoy sharing a tale with their child and journeying into the big questions that fascinate children. Teens will relish the chance to revisit a favorite fairy tale but as now addressing their own questions and concerns. Finally, adults who are intrigued by philosophy can explore the power of stories, fairy tales, to bring forward serious questions of justice, identity, and meaning making. The values of doing philosophy are many: developing our critical thinking ability, learning how to question and explore alternative ideas, building good arguments for our positions, listening to those who may see the world differently than we do and learning to engage them in meaningful dialogue. The value of using fairy tales is their accessibility to a wide audience, their innate appeal to our imagination, and their magical ability to make us ponder.

The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions PDF Book Detail Author: Martin Gardner
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
ISBN: 1470463555
Category : Mathematics
Languages : en
Pages : 263

Book Description
Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games columns in Scientific American inspired and entertained several generations of mathematicians and scientists. Gardner in his crystal-clear prose illuminated corners of mathematics, especially recreational mathematics, that most people had no idea existed. His playful spirit and inquisitive nature invite the reader into an exploration of beautiful mathematical ideas along with him. These columns were both a revelation and a gift when he wrote them; no one--before Gardner--had written about mathematics like this. They continue to be a marvel. This volume, first published in 1969, contains columns published in the magazine from 1961-1963. This is the 1991 edition and it contains an afterword and extended bibliography added by Gardner at that time.
