A Novel about the History of Philosophy. 20 million copies sold in 45 languages. One day Sophie comes home from school to find two questions in her mail--who are you? and where does the world come from? Before she knows it, Sophie is enrolled in a correspondence course with a mysterious philosopher. Before she knows it, she is pondering all the great questions of Western philosophy (from the Greeks to Kant, to Marx and Freud) with a mysterious mentor. But Sophie is also receiving a separate batch of equally unusual letters. Who is Hilde? And why does her mail keep turning up in Sophie's world? To solve this riddle, Sophie uses her new knowledge of philosophy, but the truth is far stranger than she could have imagined.
