Overview


Twenty-three essays by young professional philosophers examine crucial ethical and metaphysical aspects of the Buffyverse (the world of Buffy). Though the show already attracted much scholarly attention, this is the first book to fully disinter the intellectual issues. Designed by Whedon as a multilevel story with most of its meanings deeply buried in heaps of heavy irony, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has replaced The X-Files as the show that explains to Americans the nature of the powerful forces of evil continually threatening to surge into our world of everyday decency and overwhelm it. In the tradition of the classic horror films Buffy the Vampire Slayer addresses ethical issues that have long fascinated audiences. This book draws out the ethical and metaphysical lessons from a pop-culture phenomenon.

    Just when you thought Buffy was just another teen show...

    Let me start by saying that I've been a fan of this show for years and have never been embarrassed to admit it. I've also studied philosophy for many years, both in my college courses and through some independent study of my own. I have to say, this book reads better than any text book I've read (and I happen to have enjoyed most of my philosophy texts) and yet analyzes and argues its points with relative brilliance. If you're a fan of the show and want to gain a greater understanding of its wisdom and complexity, read this book. If you haven't watched the show because you think it's a silly prospect, only for teens, then this book will prove you wrong! Joss Whedon is a brilliant man!

    Nice Read

    I haven't finished reading this yet, and I first bought it only because I liked the show and I was bored but it has really caught my attention. This book makes you think more about T.V. shows that you thought we're just entertaining.
