A book for you: Il Signore è grande e non si può disegnare
Dear little philosophers,
Are you ready for this new lesson? Yes? So let’s start with some small questions: do you like drawing? What do you represent most? Do you have any favourite subjects?
But how many questions, you say!!! 😉 Don’t worry, there’s a reason and it’s a book, as we’ll find out in a bit.
Do you remember? Last week we set out a series of questions about the origin of the everything and we discovered what Thales, Anaximander and Anaximenes thought about this argument. (https://fuoritempofuoriluogo.wordpress.com/2018/06/12/lorigine-del-tutto/).
Speaking about the origin of everything, I remembered this masterpiece written by the journalist and author Gualtiero Pierce. With his television crew he has observed Jewish, Christians and Muslims children attending the confessional elementary schools of Rome. They have faced these great but delicate themes with their teachers and friends answering some questions. What do you say? Are you curious? But first of all the photo of the book:
But now try to answer some of the questions of the book and to write your answers in the comments. Ready?
1. How was God born? Where did God come from? Has he always existed?
2. Why do you think it is not possible to draw him?
3. Do you like words? Do you think they have a weight?
4. Who do you ask for forgiveness when you make mistakes?
5. What is the meaning of the word “Thank you “?
Are you curious enough? Then read the book but above all never stop asking questions.
The complete informations of this book: Il Signore è grande e non si può disegnare, Gualtiero Pierce, ed einuadi.
