Read in January, 2004

I had had my share of ancient and modern philosophers, I thought. Some parts of the book were more or less familiar to me. BUT, when the ancient philosophy was left behind, I also had to read and re-read passages, for they were not clear to me.
I liked the book, for its originality: a philosopher explaining things to a young girl, very inventive. It is not a simple read though. I'll give it a try again soon, this is the kind of book I can read multiple times and still find new things in it.
