“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.

Philosophy: General Philosophy
“Where existing philosophy books for children typically focus on surveys of ideas or broad historical overviews, the Plato & Co. books take a more ‘storied’ approach. They take isolated events in the lives of the philosophers to illustrate their theories, aiming to teach a philosophical theory through the experience of reading a traditional picture book.”
