About-

"Sam Rocha's primer reminds me of a French adage: la philo descends dans la rue--philosophy comes to the street. Rocha's little book can be read and talked about, with profit, on the street, in the home, in the school, in the garden, anywhere the human heart beats and the human mind thinks."
--David T. Hansen, Weinburg Professor in the History and Philosophy of Education, Teachers College Columbia University

"Rocha gives us a compelling experience of first-hand philosophizing, in which the ordinary is shown in its powerful features, and the discipline of philosophy of education reclaims its necessity."
--Cristina Cammarano, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Salisbury University

"Rocha's illustrated primer is an eye-opening introduction to the philosophy of education. And, unlike too many illustrated texts, its pen and ink drawings are a thought provoking complement to this highly readable introduction."
--David Mosley, Professor of Philosophy, Bellarmine University

"An elegantly written invitation to students and the general reader to a frame of mind where one is ready to learn from and think about philosophy and education. Sam Rocha calls us all back, in heart-felt yet precise prose, to philosophy's ancient role of dialogue, wonder, and reflection. A joy to read and treasure."
--AG Rud, Distinguished Professor, Washington State University

"A charming and clearly written introduction to the philosophy of education, inspired by the writings of William James."
--Graham Harman, Associate Provost for Research Administration and Professor of Philosophy, The American University in Cairo
