Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Philosophy of The X-Files will be a hit with X-philes and fans of philosophy alike. It might even turn some X-philes into philosophy fans." —Christopher B. Blakley, Louisiana State University" —

"Kowalski and his contributors have put together a great book that discusses central issues in Epistemology, Metaphysics, all against the backdrop of The X-Files." —Roger P. Ebertz, University of Dubuque" —

"The Philosophy of the X-Files... analyzes the underlying philosophy of the popular science fiction television series." —Ripon Magazine" —

"Conard's collection is particularly welcome because the contributors have but one task: to consider what precisely lies beneath the polished surface of the Coens' films, and to deconstruct the bleak vision the films consistently embrace. Elegant and engaging, this is a key resource on the Coens' films." —G.A. Foster, Choice" —
