Not the same version as shown by the cover photo. I received an older version that had some writing in it. It is still a great read though.

Entertaining Timeline

by William O on Feb 24, 2011

Sophie's World is a well laid out history of signifigant philosophical history intertwined with a story of two girls; Sophie and Hilde who are both adolescants. The historical facts are broken up nicely by their somewhat lighthearted attitudes and lives, This is a good starting point for those who want to figure out how we (humanity) have gotten to this point in our collective understanding.

Philosophy wrapped around a story...or is it the other way around? An excellent book for youth and adults!


Must Read!

Presents a straight-forward yet entertaining look on the different worldviews we encounter in life. A great introduction to philosophy book for youth, but really for all ages.


Everybody should read this magnificent book!

by SAW3 on Nov 16, 2007

As adults, we forget to keep asking the philosophical questions that were so stimulating in our early years. This book reminds us of all those questions: Is there a God? What is the meaning of life? What is human knowledge? Where does it come from? It is very exciting to stretch your mind again over the theoretical. This book is the tool to help you do so. It is one of the best books ever written on the subject: It is a superb vehicle for teaching philosophy!
