Book Description

A page-turning novel that is also an exploration of the great philosophical concepts of Western thought, Sophie's World has fired the imagination of readers all over the world, with more than twenty million copies in print.

One day fourteen-year-old Sophie Amundsen comes home from school to find in her mailbox two notes, with one question on each: "Who are you?" and "Where does the world come from?" From that irresistible beginning, Sophie becomes obsessed with questions that take her far beyond what she knows of her Norwegian village. Through those letters, she enrolls in a kind of correspondence course, covering Socrates to Sartre, with a mysterious philosopher, while receiving letters addressed to another girl. Who is Hilde? And why does her mail keep turning up? To unravel this riddle, Sophie must use the philosophy she is learning--but the truth turns out to be far more complicated than she could have imagined.

A Mindful-Journey, fantastic, and curiosity-arising!
By: Alonzo Jethro

Eager to know more about Philosophy but don't know where to start on?

Let this book reply your eagerness. Grateful to Jostein Gaarder, who attracted me to join his mindful journey to the history of philosophy, begin with the ancient Greece until the contemporer philosophy through the main character of this book, Sophie.

Sophie Amundsen, a Norwegian 14 y.o. girl, began this excited journey along with Alberto Knox, a man who lead her philosoph-fantasical journey. 

Spare your time and your mind, and you'll get more than the things about philosophy--the meaning of life.
