Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Doctor Who and Philosophy, a team of mostly human philosophers (who are also fans) looks at the deeper issues raised by the Doctor's mind-blowing adventures. They discuss, among other topics, the Doctor's philosophy of science, the ethics of a universe with millions of intelligent species, what makes one life-form more important than another, whether time travelers can change history, and how the Doctor Who TV show is changing the world we live in. The chapters draw freely on both the classic series (1963–1989) and the new series. The book includes a collection of entertaining and insightful quotes from Doctor Who plus a complete list of episodes and companions.

Book News Annotation:

Part of a series discussing philosophy and modern culture, this collection of essays explores the world of British science fiction television character, Dr. Who, through a philosopher's eye. The text is divided into six "episodes" each exploring different perspectives of a broad topic e.g. ethics, or empathy, and includes such essays as "The Ethics of the Last Time Lords" and "Should the Daleks be Exterminated?". Contributors are philosophy professors, PhD candidates, and Dr. Who fans. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
