Friendship and Moral Education

Twin Pillars of Philosophy for Children


Ann Reed and Tony W. Johnson

Friendship and Moral Education introduces both educators and philosophers to a unique, international blend of philosophy, education, and children. Philosophy for Children has often been touted as a critical thinking skills program, but it is much, much more. By tracing the roots of Philosophy for Children and by explaining its emergence in the social, philosophical, and educational context of the second half of the twentieth century, the authors tease out how and why Philosophy for Children is grounded in the ideals of moral education and friendship.
