This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Based on the best-selling book by Jostein Gaarder, Sophie's World on CD-ROM explores the history of philosophy through a Socratian series of questions and answers. Like the book, the approach is question-based. What is time? Do we have free will? These are just a few of the questions posed by guide Alberto, the cheeky Socratian gadfly, and Sophie herself, and explored through rich graphical environments, interactive games and snippets of background material.

German box says Pentium with Windows 95/98 and PowerPC for Mac.
But it includes a fat application for both 68k and PPC.

If anyone could add the English version to this page, this would be very appreciated.
