Ted – Socrates’ Dog
How Dogs Interpret the World
by Teresa Viarengo

Socrates left no philosophical writings himself, but luckily he had a dog called Ted who faithfully learnt and interpreted his sayings. Through Ted and his canine friends, and with reference to famous philosophers, readers learn how dogs interpret the world.

In the book, the canine characters reveal why they obey humans, what their view on freedom is, what they think about cats, what makes them happy and what makes them suffer. With humour and doggy wisdom, along with a bit of help from philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and Diogenes, Ted and his friends reflect on friendship, love and life.

Fully illustrated throughout, this picture book for adults explores important issues in a humorous and thoughtful way. Like Charlotte Fraser’s Dog, Teresa’s book contains many witty and heartwarming ideas, and the book can also be likened to Rupert Fawcett’s Off the Leash. The characters are simultaneously funny and serious in this book packed with irony, humour and playfulness which will appeal to dog owners and amateur philosophers alike.
