I started to read a book named Sophie’s world. It is recommended by some of my friends. It is a very famous novel. It wrote by a philosophy teacher who create a story about a young girl who received some letters from unknown people asking her some questions – for example, “who are you”, where the universe come from. It is a very good book for people who never learned anything about this philosophy. There is a system where every chapter will tell you something about this philosophy. The book also combine a lot of philosophy theories into this story
