This is a book for both believers and skeptics. True believers in the idea of philosophy for children will certainly want to learn the life story of Matthew Lipman, who is the modern father of that revolutionary idea. True skeptics may be curious to learn how a conventionally trained philosopher could leave a tenured professorship at Columbia to establish the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children. Both believers and skeptics are in for a good read. - Gareth B. Matthews, Professor of Philosophy, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Review:

A Life Teaching Thinking is a capstone to the unflaggingly vital and productive life of Matthew Lipman. Eloquent, insightful, erudite, this moving blend of memoir and philosophical reflection brings us to a deeper understanding of the lasting import of his labor of love bringing philosophy to schools around the world. Professor Lipman is incomparable in the embodiment and practice of a singularly rich tradition of American philosophy -- as deed, as way of life, as that discipline that can best respond to the needs and evolve the ideals and aspirations of a democratic citizenry. Lipman s pioneering Philosophy for Children movement has been a principal inspiration for me and countless others privileged to have him as beloved mentor and touchstone, and is an unstoppable force for global human enfranchisement. --Christopher Phillips, Author of Socrates Cafe --Christopher Phillips, Author of Socrates Cafe
