«Sophie’s world»: a 1991 novel by Norwegian writer Jostein Gaarder met with enormous success worldwide. The heroin Sophie Amundsen, an adolescent living in Norway, is introduced to the world of philosophical thinking thanks to Αlberto Knox, a middle-aged philosopher. Together, the teacher and his pupil will start from the pre-Socratic philosophers and will go all the way to Jean-Paul Sartre.
Today another book with the title «Follow the white rabbit into the world of philosophy, is a best-seller in Germany. The author, Philipp Hübl, professor of theoretic philosophy at the University of Stuttgart, serves as guide to those readers interested in modern philosophy and answers important life questions such as “does God exist, can people live without feelings, are we free in our decisions, are dreams useful, why is beauty important, does death have a certain meaning?”
Two other authors, the professor of philosophy at the University of Munich, Julian Nida-Rümelin, and his wife Nathalie Weidenfeld considered concluding philosophical truths out of conversations they had with children. This way, their book «Sokrates Club» was born.
