Hi! Here are a few of my suggestions:
By the way I think it’s great that you want to learn more about the world.

Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind Yuval Noah Harari
Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Pérez
The Diary of Anne Frank, if you’ve never read it.
Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right Hardcover – Sept. 6 2016 by Arlie Russell Hochschild
The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion Paperback – Illustrated, Feb. 12 2013 by Jonathan Haidt

- Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death, and Hard Truths in a Northern City Paperback – Sept. 30 2017 by Tanya Talaga
Those are a few that come to mind. Maybe not quite along the lines of philosophy that you were looking for, but all very interesting and important reads in my opinion.
Enjoy! There is so much out there to learn, read as much as you can, question and fact check everything!

Of course fiction books are more fun like Heart or A Gentleman in Moscow or All the Light you cannot see…
