Sophie’s World

What a book! Written for children (of all ages) and a great way to learn more about philosophy.

Together with Sophie, you take a journey through history. You learn from the Greeks, from Kierkegaard, and most of all from the conversations between Sophie and her mysterious philosophy teacher.

What makes the story great (for me) is the interaction between Sophie and Alberto Knox (her philosophy teacher). She acts as the reader and asks questions you might also have.

The book is a bit heavy on information for an audiobook (the way I ‘read’ it). But if you already know some philosophy, it can be a great listen.

There is even a mystery weaven into the fabric of the book that will result in a very nice and unexpected ending.
