Shelves: comics, philosophy
I learned more about philosophy from this series of comic books than from all my years of school. Action Philosophers! Giant-Sized Thing, Vol. 3 is a fantastic introduction to mostly western philosophers. It's ridiculously entertaining and despite the graphic format is very thorough. For each philosopher we learn not only what they had to say, but also their life story, how their contemporaries perceived them, and how their ideas are related. In this volume I particularly enjoyed "6 Degrees of F ...more

Fred Van Lente (and company) do an excellent job of presenting (albeit in incredibly simplified versions) philosophers and their theories in this series of comic books. Philosophy is the most important activity that human beings do. Without philosophy, intellectual progress in any of the areas of intellectual endeavors would flounder. That beings said, we have a penchant for making things much more difficult than they need to be and philosophers are no exception.

Van Lente helps alleviate the pro

Recommends it for: philosophy majors cramming for an exam
Not as good as the other two volumes. This one gives a more perfunctory treatment of more philosophers, rather than an in-depth treatment of a few philosophers. I appreciated the longer explanations and the details about the philosophers' lives, so this volume was a bit of a disappointment in that respect. They also included several philosophers who I didn't think really warranted being included. I guess by the third volume they were running out of really big names. Regardless, this volume is st ...more

The Charlie Brown -John Stuart Mill strip was great and the Foucault Family Circus was genius but too short. This book got a bit gimmickly and less illuminating than the previous 2 volumes; still highly recommended for anyone remotely interested in philosophy.

If you want to understand the characters named after philosophers in "Lost" better, read this book!

Van Lente was raised by a mystery-loving mother (who preferred Dorothy Sayers to Agatha Christie, but we won't hold that against her) and a wisecracking Woody Allen-lookalike scientist father in what appears to be some kind of genetic experiment to write his first novel, TEN DEAD COMEDIANS, even though neither parent nor the son himself would know it for many years.
