A major part of my work is in the area of Philosophy with Children (PwC).

Children of a non-specific age, perhaps, but unmistakably children. And it is as children that they grapple with the existential questions, complex social dynamics, moral dilemmas and intellectual puzzles that provide the content of the cartoon strips. They do so with a mixture of wit, naivety, moral insight, wisdom and offbeat humour that makes them both lovable and laughable in various degrees. But there is something odd about their lives.

Children and adults are placed differently in society, and through coming to an acceptable definition of 'child', this book seeks to determine whether such differential status is merited. Thinking Children proposes that we might consider children as beings and not becomings, and empower them to be active and participative citizens, since they are able and adept reasoners.

This book will be of interest to all students on Childhood Studies and Education Studies courses, as well as lecturers and researchers in the field.
