Provocations, Philosophy in Secondary Schools
The latest book in The Philosophy Foundation Series
"Beautifully written, clearly presented, and drawing from a wide and rich range of original sources, this is a superb resource for secondary school teachers keen to encourage independent, bold and creative thinking from their students (and perhaps give their own critical faculties a tickle, while they’re at it...)."
Reviewed by Helen Mulley, Editor, Teach Secondary Magazine
"This book is a superb provocation to philosophy itself...It should be in every schoolroom, and every teacher’s hands, as an instrument that will transform students’ interest and capacity across the whole range not just of their studies but their lives."

Thoughtings: Puzzles, Problems and Paradoxes in Poetry to Think With
"This may look like a book - but in fact, it's a portal; a gateway into the boundless possibilities of the mind's perspectives, and stepping through it in the company of your pupils could enrich both your experience of their learning and theirs immeasurably."
Helen Mulley, Teach Primary Magazine, Issue 6.8
"This collection of poems is very, very irritating. It's irritating like having toast crumbs in your bed. It's irritating like having toast crumbs in your brain..."
Michael Rosen, poet and former Children's Laureate writes in the Foreword.

The If Odyssey
“What Peter has achieved with The If Odyssey is nothing short of genius! As a secondary school teacher of English, Theories of Knowledge and Philosophy, I find this book an irreplaceable resource. Not only does it present the teacher with crucial pedagogical instruction, but with a systematic programme in how to cultivate the requisite skills of storytelling. Moreover, he synthesises, with clarity and precision, how to relate key philosophical concepts to each of the stories from The Odyssey. Simply brilliant!"
Mark C. Blythe, teacher and postgraduate researcher in Philosophy of Education, Institute of Education, Reading University
