Sophie's World

My wife and I had to fight for this.    This is a New York Times bestseller so we can't be wrong buying this.

It's like a detective story and you'll be attracted to it.    Don't be fooled by the word philosophy because this is good even for children at 10 if your kid can manage the simple English.

If you have lived for 40 odd years and believe that you have a bit of authority over people around you then you'll be amazed that how naive you could be about knowledge of things around you, e.g. why does it rain?

I am certainly practicing expert beginner at the moment trying to follow the foot steps of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and many others.    I don't aim at becoming a philosopher but at least I should attempt to think like a philosopher.
