Richard David  Precht - Why is There Everything and not Nothing?


Who am I and if so, how many? for children

Children are the true philosophers. Their curiosity is boundless, and the questions they ask often set grownups thinking. How can you explain the world to children? Philosopher and bestselling author Richard David Precht spent a summer going for walks through Berlin with his son, Oskar. They went to the zoo, up the television tower, into the natural history museum, to a synagogue; and while they were together, father Precht answered a lot of Oskar's questions: "Am I really me?", "Is it OK to eat animals?", "Why do people worry?", "What is it like to be a flying fox?". Light-heartedly and with the help of lots of stories, Precht shows our world to children and helps them to understand it better. After his bestsellers for adults, we now have a children's book of philosophy for all young people who want to know more!

"A book that will help not just children to understand the world a little better."
