Why We Are in Need of Tales: Part Three by Maria davenza Tillmanns

In ‘Why We Are in Need of Tails’; we learn how we all used to have tails that helped us connect to each other and the world around us. When we lost our tails, we also lost our most nuanced way of communicating, so the story goes. Best friends Huk and Tuk explore ways we can compensate for this loss. They discover that by telling stories – or tales, if you like – and by discussing the intriguing questions they raise, we’re able to create a deeper understanding of ourselves, each other and the world we live in. Although Huk and Tuk’s tales seem simple at first, the questions they raise are nuanced and complex, making them rewarding for adults and children to ponder together.

Now, in Part III, the latest in the ‘Why We Are in Need of Tales’ series, Huk and Tuk gain an understanding of the different choices we make in different situations – and how important choices can be. And they learn that in order to make careful choices, we have to keep our eyes wide open.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria daVenza Tillmanns to write these whimsical, playful stories about profound, weighty ideas to help recreate the bonds of meaningful communication with one another – the young and not so young alike.

Why We Are In Need Of Tails by Maria davenza Tillmanns

Our most nuanced skills for communication were lost when we lost our tails, so the story goes.

Huk and Tuk explore ways we can compensate for this loss, by telling stories ­– tales — through polyphonic listening and by entering into dialogue to create a new, deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria deVenza Tillmanns to recreate the bonds of meaningful communication in the writing of this whimsical, playful story. Philosophy should make us — children and adults — re-think what we think we know and push the boundaries of accepted practices. Hopefully, it will also make us laugh about taking things too seriously.

Why We Are In Need Of Tales: Part Two by Maria davenza Tillmanns

In ‘Why We Are In Need Of Tails’, we learn that our most nuanced skills for communication were lost when we lost our tails – or so the story goes. Huk and Tuk explore ways to compensate for this loss by developing polyphonic listening or by entering into dialogue with each other rather than carrying on a monologue. And they learn that telling tales helps connect us when actual tails no longer can.

In Part I, Huk and Tuk discuss six different picture books by Arnold Lobel and Leo Lionni and explore the intriguing questions the tales inspire, gaining a new understanding of the deep connection we have to each other and the world we live in.

In Part II, Huk and Tuk discuss another important aspect of telling tales: making dreams come alive. Here they discuss six more tales by Arnold Lobel and Leo Lionni and learn that we cannot live without the dreams that our imaginations create. Dreams give us hope and imagination and – with the help of courage and determination – allows us to create extraordinary things.

Doing philosophy with children inspired Maria daVenza Tillmanns to write these whimsical, playful stories about profound, weighty ideas to help recreate the bonds of meaningful communication with one another – the young and not so young alike.
