These cards equip young minds with questions that will bring out the best of their thinking. No Philosophical knowledge is required, all that matters is being curious about some of the biggest conundrums of philosophy. 


Example Questions:

  • Can you make a case for why it is okay to eat some animals (like cows, pigs and lambs) and not others (like dogs, cat or goldfish)?
  • Imagine that you and your best friend swapped brains: your brain was inserted into their body, and their brain was inserted into yours. Which person would be ‘you’ - the one with your brain in their body, or their brain in yours? Or would it be neither? Or both?

  • Should people be allowed to keep all the money they can earn? Or should they be made to give some money away to help others? Explain why?
