Merlin is a new philosophy teacher. This uncouth, irreverent and ironic teacher has a strong, totally unconventional personality. He stomps through the high school like an elephant in a china shop, determined to change the lives of students and teachers alike with his revolutionary methods. His motto is: “Teenagers aren’t stupid, they’re simply asleep,” and his objective is to make them wake up. His weapons are: Kant, Aristotle, Plato… classic philosophers to help kids face today’s great challenges. What might these kids be capable of if they stop acting like part of the herd and start thinking for themselves?

As a teacher, Merlin makes Socrates, Hume, Nietzsche and other figures in the history of philosophy come alive for his students… and he helps them, not without conflicts, to resolve their own everyday problems.
