We may know something but sometimes find it difficult to explain why; we may know something to be true when others know it to be false. Epistemology engages in trying to help us explain why and how we identify our knowledge.
Philosophers have pondered upon how one justifies their knowledge. What kind of knowledge did Horton have? What can we say about intuitions? Philosophers lay out the ideas of truth and belief.
Is knowledge a combination of both?
Horton Hears a Who
What about skepticism? Is it innate truth that small persons do not live on tiny dust speaks?
What about knowledge that is gained through the senses? This is the key issue in the story.
Horton cannot see that there is a creature on the speck of dust, but reasons through his intuition that the tiny voice he heard must mean there is a being present. Philosophers could classify this knowledge as empiricism.
It is through the senses that the jungle animals acquire knowledge of the Whos existence. It is important to note that differences in opinions are natural, the children may disagree about how Horton knows there are persons on his clover, they may take the opinion of the jungle animals, how could there be a person on a tiny speak of dust? In teaching epistemology, and philosophy in general, questions are discussed but final conclusions may not be made.
The jungle animals do not hear a voice on the dust speak-a person on that? How could it be? That idea goes against all of their previous beliefs, all their previous knowledge. What do they know for sure is true? How did they know this truth?
Did they have to use their senses to believe it? It is not until the jungle animals heard the small voice that they believed? Why did they have to hear to believe? Just as the animals disagree about what is real, so should the children as well. Through reading and discussing this story, young listeners may root for Horton. Of course there are persons on that dust speck.
How can the animals not believe him? This brings about the opportunity for the students to think critically. Why are the jungle animals steadfast in their beliefs?
Is knowledge completely certain or can the truth change? Questions for Philosophical Discussion By Marisa Cooke When Horton hears the voice on the dust speak, he reasons that there must exist a person, too small to be seen, but who is definitely there.
How does Horton know that this voice means there is a person on the speck? What justifies her belief that a person could not be on the dust speck?
How does Horton try to convince the kangaroo of the existence of a person on the dust speck? If you were Horton what would you say to convince the kangaroo? He returned from Europe in , and began working for a magazine called Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at the time, submitting both cartoons and humorous articles for them.

Eventually in a friend published the book for him, and it went on to at least moderate success. In May of , Life published a report concerning illiteracy among school children.
The report said, among other things, that children were having trouble to read because their books were boring.
