1914. Europe is at war. The experts on deciphering code and secret writing are wild with excitement: What in the world can be the meaning of those incomprehensible notes scribbled by secret agent Ludwig Wittgenstein? The young scholar himself is unable to help them—he is hunting a wild beast, a figure of dubious existence…
Plato & Co. introduces children—and curious grown-ups—to the lives and work of famous philosophers, from Descartes to Socrates, Einstein, Marx, and Wittgenstein. Each book in the series features an engaging—and often funny—story that presents basic tenets of philosophical thought alongside vibrant color illustrations. Plato & Co.'s clear approach and charming illustrations make this series the perfect addition to any little library.
Françoise Armengaud has taught philosophy of language and esthetics at the University Paris X-Nanterre. She is the author of several books, among them an introduction to philosophical pragmatism, and writes picture books and poems for children.

Annabelle Buxton (born 1986 in Basingstoke, England, lives and works in Paris) has studied at the École Estienne in Paris and at the École supérieure des Arts décoratifs in Strasbourg. She does illustrations for books, newspapers, magazines, publicity, and comic fanzines.
