Helene´s World and Plato

It is always intriguing to see your children and grandchildren grow up and develop.
I often think about what I did when I was at their ages, and must admit that was not at all close to reading philosophy like Helene (9), here doing schoolwork about philosophy like Habermas (Public Sphere), Kant (Critique of Pure Reason), Heidegger (Being and Time), Aristotle (The Ethics) and  Plato´s The Republic
The Republic is Plato's best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice
I gave Helene the book Sophie´s World some years ago, but she did not like it then. Maybe she now are more mature to read this novel from 1991 written by Norwegian writer Jostein Gaarder
