Philosophy Friends! Rawls Rabbit and the Fair Race

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical)

PHILOSOPHY FRIENDS! introduces young children to major philosophical figures and to basic concepts such as fairness, the good, liberty, meaning and more. Each book centers around a great philosopher’s key insight, presented in a playful and accessible way that children love. RAWLS RABBIT AND THE FAIR RACE is an illustrated story inspired by John Ralws' idea of Justice as Fairness. Our hero, Rawls Rabbit loves to race with his friends. But after losing a race to a speedier hare he realizes natural talents can lead to unfair situations. He thus proposes what he calls "a fair race": one in which the rules benefit the slowest ones so that everyone can compete fairly.
