really liked it
bookshelves: stillfreshonmymind
Recommended for: amateur philosophers
Read in August, 2007

It isn't the best in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series (I can't wait until the Lost version comes out in a few years!), but it is a nice examination of philosophical concepts using the wealth of superhero history from film and comics as exemplars. Much of it went over the head of my 7-year-old, who insisted we read it together at night. It is very thought-provoking and great fodder for conversation.
