John V. Karavitis Discusses the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series
In addition to providing entertainment, pop culture can enlighten us about many aspects of our internal and external lives. Under Series Editor William Irwin, PhD, the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series uses television, films, video games, and graphic novels to teach readers various theories about humanity and the world.
The collection started with South Park and Philosophy, and it has since amassed more than 20 volumes focusing on Lost, Harry Potter, Mad Men, Iron Man, and many other media products. One of its most recent additions, The Avengers and Philosophy: Earth’s Mightiest Thinkers, applies the ideas of Aristotle, John Locke, and Immanuel Kant to the iconic group of superheroes. Moreover, this book covers the comic incarnations of the characters, rather than their live-action counterparts.
