Story Beginnings:

  • The Flower Story -- beginning

    Other Philosophical Story Beginnings

    More recently, I have made up story beginnings, like the one above, but based on passages in the works of ancient or medieval philosophers. I will give some examples below. In each case, I give the passage in the classic text right after I give the story beginning. For these story beginnings, I do not supply a completion. Any kid who wants to work out a completion to the story is welcome to share it with me, either at the e-mail address above, or at the mail address. The same holds for parents and teachers, who might want to read and discuss these story beginnings with children in their families or with a class at school.
