trees to pastries, each chapter discusses how reflection, relationships, reasoning, and resistance are meaningful to developing an identity. The works of four creative philosophers laid the framework and inspired the characters and situations encountered by Phil and Sophia. Dendra is inspired by Marya Schehtman’s narrative account of personal identity, Streben is inspired by Paul Katsafanas’ Nietzschean view, Sunyata is inspired by Derek Parfit’s reductionist account of personal identity, and the Pastries are inspired by Christine Korsgaard’s work with practical identity. Phil and Sophia are us. We all question the world. On the road to their new house, Phil and Sophia listen together, work together, become frustrated together, and ultimately question who they are—together. The story is full of inquiry and deep thinking that inspires engagement with philosophy. Philosophical exploration involves active participation in a dialogue with the intention of achieving wisdom. It is an inherently communal process that values new ideas and new ways of seeing the world. This book takes seriously the idea that children can profit greatly from engaging with philosophical ideas and it aims to facilitate and encourage such engagement. Through discussion questions presented at the end of every chapter, this book is designed to spur reflection and conversation, it is best read with others.
