The Philosophy Resistance Squad (Paperback)
Grant sets a totalitarian system within an Irish boarding school and shows how philosophy can fight back against oppressive ideologies. It's 1984, Clockwork Orange, and Brave New World for kids but with a more optimistic perspective! It's a great introduction to the Socratic method. [Blanca]— From The Philosophy Resistance Squad
A funny philosophical romp about a group of kids who use the power of critical thinking to take on a wicked headmaster.
Milo is thrilled to be starting at the country's most prestigious school. But it soon becomes clear that something sinister is going on. The headmaster, Dr Pummelcrush, is bent on brainwashing the students and turning them into mindless, unthinking human robots.
When Milo stumbles across a bright and colourful secret garden and meets its joyous gardener, he and his friends begin to open their minds to a whole new way of thinking: philosophy. Can the Philosophy Resistance Squad use their new questioning skills to resist Pummelcrush's evil project and save their classmates from being zombified?
