Philosophy About Leadership

By Jason Buckley | July 21, 2022

Most schools in the UK have already broken up, but as this is a topical session I thought I’d send it out. In honour (/dishonour?) of the Conservative leadership election, we took leadership as the theme of the last week of online classes, centring on the difference between what it takes to become leader, and…

    My granddaughter is 8 and home schooled. My daughter does not have much spare money but would love to invest in teaching P4c. Which books do you recommend for us to use. Thank you .

    • Thomas Bigglestone on October 24, 2017 at 9:33 am

      Hi Sue, thank you for your message. To get started, and at low-cost, we’d recommend our two minibooks:

      Thinkers Games
      Philosophy Circles: Embed P4C in Your Curriculum

      Each can be found in our shop at £2.50 each, and we feel help teachers make an immediate start with P4c in their lessons. I’ve no doubt your daughter would find them highly useful on a daily basis.

      Do let us know if you’ve any further questions.

      Tom and Jason

    Hi, I got started loving P4C once I heard about it last year. I am very interested in books in your shop but as I am in China, is it possible to buy and send to Shanghai, China? Is it a very high expense?

    • Jason Buckley on March 23, 2020 at 12:18 pm

      So sorry I missed this. We rarely used to get comments on the site and I’ve only noticed it with the recent flurry. Yes, we do send to Shanghai and have sent an order to a colleague of yours back in 2018.
