Lipman saw his own philosophical novels for children as “models of doing philosophy that are clear, practical, and specific.”<span>  </span>In this sense, teaching philosophy requires more than exposing students to its logical form—that is, it’s most distinctive and essential qualities—but also to its function and the circumstances of its emergence and practice.<span>  </span>Thus philosophical novels are a way of “dramatizing philosophy” that allow students to both recognize and assimilate its praxis.<span>  </span>This Lipmanian understanding of the philosophical novel and its role in education has been celebrated and championed by some scholars (eg., De Marzio, Kennedy, et. al), while criticized and tempered by others (eg. Murris, Hand, et. al).<span>  </span>Given the diversity of current perspectives on the philosophical novel, the time is ripe for furthering the conversation on the history, theory, and prospect of this highly significant and contested area of philosophical and educational inquiry.</p>
