Sophie's World


I have proved my self that I am a very slow reader .... I've been reading Sophie's world for more than 2 months !! and i still have 150 pages to go !! but i just can’t find time to finish it
................
It's a book about the history of philosophy ... seems all the philosophers were interpreted same ideas (soul, nature, Ideas, matters) while reading I asked my self a question like Sophie’s
.............

"And men seem to live in a world of their own. I am more interested in the real world, where there are flowers and animals and children that are both born and grow up. Your philosophers are always talking about "man" and "humans", and now here's another treatise on "human nature." It's as if this "human" is a middle-aged man. I mean, life begins with pregnancy and birth, and I've heard nothing about diapers or crying babies so far. And hardly anything about love and friendship" page - 223
.............

It is very interesting yet boring at some points! Don’t ask me how. I recognized Descartes immediately since we studied some of his work during high school and his famous quote "I think, therefore I am" and for sure the sophist.... they r interesting :D
the last pages i reached a week ago (page - 239) made my mind spin that’s why i left the book and said to my self read when u r fully awake ....
..........

3 people suggested this book at the same period of time and i have to say it is worthy...

It's a good book, yet philosophy didn't really interest me.
