What can I know? What should I do? What may I hope? What's for dinner? More than two hundred years ago, on a day that takes quite a peculiar course, Professor Kant is working hard to give an answer to all these questions. Not only the morning papers, but also a slightly perfumed letter get in his way however. As a result, he even forgets to go out on his regular digestive walk—and everything goes off the rails…
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.
Jean-Paul Mongin is a philosopher who lives and works in Paris. He is the publisher of the French series Les petits Platons.

Laurent Moreau is a French illustrator for children's books, newspapers, and magazines.
