From Delphi the Philosopher


Time is running out for Socrates and Delphi is getting desperate.  And why had all these strange things started happening to her?  If anyone could help it would be the gods.  Surely, they can do anything.  Can't they?

This download consists of the Zeus enquiry from Delphi the Philosopher.


This lesson challenges children to start thinking about philosophical problems in more abstract rather than concrete terms.  This is achieved by developing children’s logical thinking through attempting some philosophical puzzles.  The lesson uses the mind mapping technique to help children unpick the word ‘free’ and what its potential limits are – revisiting and developing the mind map through the lesson.  The chapter also references some famous arguments about the nature of God from medieval philosophy – the idea of creating an immoveable boulder and the problem of free will – within the context of the Greek gods.
