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.
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!
