Supervillains and Philosophy based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you are a serious Philosopher this is a bit low brow. However, that being said if you are a Professor and need a book that introduces many of the topics that are covered in Introductory courses, I would recommend this as a option. It is well written and researched and presents many of the central expository figures in the series of footnotes to Plato. It is written in a way that students will find enjoyable and relevant, in fact this can be said for the majority of books in the Pop Culture and Philosophy library. If you are not an academic and would like to just look at the philosophical underpinnings of your favorite villains this is a fun read that is also educational. This is a great introduction to the world of philosophy and the ideas of some of the great thinkers of the past.
Not really what i was expecting considering all the other books that have been released concerning comic book characters and philosophy. This book is made stupid by some writers making up stupidly named villians like "henchman feta" and " big cheese" instead of already created known and well loved supervillians. Id skip this one if i were you.
