    There are thousands of philosophy books published in many different countries over the course of thousands of years. Can you narrow it down? Are you looking for a good introductory texts? If so, I think there are several other questions here that cover the same ground. – Chris Sunami Jul 28 '16 at 18:01

    @K.M. That just repeats your original question. I've never heard anyone refer to "the Philosophy," given how many different philosophies there are. Do you mean the perennial philosophy? The love of wisdom? The discipline of philosophy? Are you looking for an introduction, overview or summary of the entire topic? Or are you just looking for a definition of the word? – Chris Sunami Jul 28 '16 at 20:33

    At the age of twelve (or so) I read Sophie's World. While not 100% accurate in terms of academic interpretations, it gives an idea of some basics of philosophy and has been an incentive for me for going deeper into it. – Philip Klöcking Jul 29 '16 at 10:38
