    One thought on “Sophie's World”

    1. It took me two months to get through this 500 page book I can rationalize the reasons thusly I was busy I took time to absorb the content of the book Instead of rushing through it, I let each chapter sink in before I moved on.But that s, you know, rationalizing Here s the real reason It s not very good Okay, wait, that s not fair Let me start again.Sophie s World is, as the full title suggests, a Novel about the history of philosophy The idea is to present that history as a narrative, featuring [...]

    4. I was a philosophy major in school and everybody would ask if I had read Sophie s World What an amazing book they would gush You ll love it So I bought it Purchased the book, let it simmer on my shelf for awhile, and finally picked it up a few years ago to give it a go.I slogged through the first few chapters Did my best to suspend my disbelief at the transparently device the author uses to introduce the ideas of many famous and not so famous philosophers I tried to ignore the sophomoric dialog [...]

    7. This has been an upsetting reread because I ve found that though the book is a quiet entity on its own and in the mind of its readers, I was left hungry for , but I was also balanced For years after I read this book, which changed my life for the better, I thought it was the best read of the world.Naive that I was, I also thought back then, that all philosophy books were as digestible as Sophie s World What a delusion The book is now slow and uncouth, being cut from the same cloth as Aristotle s [...]

    8. I enjoyed the book immensely I studied basic philosophy in college so I soon became aware that many philosophers were left out and whole era s were glossed over in this book You know, that s OK One It s not a text book and two It s NOT a text book The stories are separate and finally come together in a fairly predictable way It is a bit didactic, but imagine yourself a very bright, curious, thoughtful and sensitive 14, 15 or 16 year old struggling with the usual thoughts and feelings of angst an [...]

    9. Basically, Russell s History of Western Philosophy adapted as a postmodern Norwegian YA novel Or if you want details view spoiler Where are we asked Sofie I don t understand We aren t in my world any Or in Hilde s world So Alberto sighed It is clear, he said, that we have entered another narrative By the look of it, I strongly suspect a review On the website Explain said Sofie You remember that we became a book, continued Alberto patiently I can see that this book was very successful It has be [...]

    10. The two things this book has going for it are the plot and narrative frame are original and creative, and the story is informative than most The basic premise is that a 14 year old Norwegian girl embarks on a correspondence course with a philosopher, and he teaches her the major points of Western philosophy, from the ancient Greeks up until the existentialists What makes the narrative structure original than your average novel is that everything becomes very meta and self referential towards t [...]

    11. Sophie s World by Jostein Gaarder is an ambitious project which falls flat in my opinion, of course.It is a very good introduction to European philosophy, with a few casual references to Eastern thought thrown in for the sake of comparison Starting with Pre Socratics, it provides a fairly simple and comprehensive look at classical philosophy In the middle, it makes a detour into Christian theology and the Middle Ages before emerging triumphantly from the dark with Renaissance thought Towards the [...]

    12. Sophie s World is an outline of Western philosophy that is beautifully set in a fictional story It goes from pre Socratic philosophy all the way to Sartre Jostein Gaarder does a very good job not just by writing a concise history of philosophy, but also by writing a very accessible book for as far as early teenagers, which in itself is worthy of high praise His comparison between different philosophers throughout the book is truly remarkable and made the book very enjoyable He demonstrates, for [...]

    13. My dear Sophie, there comes a time when you have to face some harsh truths about this wicked world And I think that time is now Some people, and it pains me to say this, are not what they seem I m sorry to have to tell you this, but that breezy scoutmaster, that avuncular English teacher, and that fit young P.E teacher might not be paedophiles at all I know Sometimes you have to read between the lines, and catch the innuendo in what appear to be innocent remarks For instance, should the English [...]
