Our newest philosophy book, “The Paradox Box,” teaches philosophy through a historical fiction story that draws students in to the life and times of Ludwig Wittgenstein, one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century.

We’re thrilled to announce the newest Western philosophy book by Dr. Sharon Kaye! “The Squirrel Behind the Tree” is a novel about John Dewey, the foremost American philosopher of the twentieth century who single-handedly revolutionized the American education system.

“I want philosophy to be a lifelong friend for my children—and for all of their friends, and for all of their friends’ friends, and for the whole next generation. As they venture into civilization, philosophy will be their defense against me and all of the teachers, role models, bosses, and societal influences who, well-meaning or not, give too many suggestions and with too heavy a hand.” – Dr. Sharon Kaye
