Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey’s Action Philosophers takes bite-sized looks at mankind’s greatest philosophers, their lives and their teachings – and it’s brilliant!

This first volume includes: Plato, Bodhidharma, St Augustine, Thomas Jefferson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Ayn Rand and Joseph Campbell with chapters ranging from 6 to 14 pages per philosopher.

It’s really impressive how Van Lente is able to condense complex theories and biographies into such a small number of

Pertama kali saya baca buku ini sewaktu sedang butek-buteknya belajar di kelas Dasar-Dasar Filsafat. Waktu itu, saya meminjam ini dari seorang teman dan setelah membacanya..... *cling cling* SAUDARA-SAUDARA, SAYA JADI MEMAHAMI ARTI KEHIDUPAN!!

.......oke, nggak sampai begitu juga sih. Namun, saya memang sangat merasakan gunanya komik edukasi ini. Di volume pertama, 9 filsuf terkemuka dan pemikiran berpengaruh mereka ditampilkan dengan kombinasi penjelasan apik + gambar jenaka. Plato, Bodhidarma,

A great pick for people who fancy themselves to be intellectuals but really prefer reading comic books. Not only did this book cover the basic philosophies espoused by several great thinkers, it also provided important biographical information (who knew that Ayn Rand had a thing for much younger men?). I'm looking forward to reading the second volume!

Learning can be such fun! I love this springboard into philosophical thought.

Publishers Weekly says it is written “ the spirit of extremely intelligent kids set on making fun of everything...”

I’m with that all the way.

The content is factual, based on my limited knowledge and the reviews, but does it really matter? What matters is it gets you thinking, giving you motivation to explore further.

My remarks on the philosphers:

• Plato - good start for accepting the concept of Philoso

Recommended to Pspealman by:
A nice and light hearted black and white comics that is a touch off beat. I'll be honest the graphics are more cartoon than art, the paper is pulp, and the content introductory - but still this is a real nice piece of intro via comics to a ever widening range of 'philosophers' as the series spirals ever outward.

By 'philosophers' being in quotes I mean to direct your attention to the fact that the book takes a certain liberty in the term that includes people not often thought to be philosophers.

Plato Smash!

The idea of having Plato speak like The Hulk might sound ridiculous in a book that claims to be (at least somewhat) historically accurate. But remember the book is also trying to entertain, and make philosophy fun. No, Plato was not a professional wrestler, but his tendency to destroy to theories of those before him lends itself to this adapted personality. In the end, it all makes sense (somewhat).

Anyway, Action Philosophers is not only enjoyable, but incredibly factual. I actuall

What is not to love about Action Philosophers? Van Lente & Dunlavely present the core ideas of the great philosophers in a humorous irreverent style that actually does not misrepresent or over-simplify too much. I'm not sure if the goal here is to expose comic book readers to the great thinkers of the past, or just give a laugh to former philosophy majors.

Not a narrative story, but comic mini-biographies of Plato, Nietzsche, Freud, etc. See the slaves of Monticello tap Thomas Jefferson on the shoulder and ask, "What about us?" Watch as Ayn Rand's rationalization skills crumble when her lover starts sleeping with a student.

I learned more about philosophy from this series of comic books than from all my years of school. Action Philosophers! Giant-Sized Thing, Vol. 1 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 learning about ...more
