Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Legions of Bob Dylan fans know he is not just a great composer, writer, and performer, but a great thinker as well. In this collection, 18 philosophers analyze Dylan's ethical positions, political commitments, views on gender and sexuality, and his complicated and controversial attitudes toward religion.

Book News Annotation:

Vernezze (philosophy, Weber State U., Utah) and Porter (English, Weber State) dedicate these 16 essays to Dylan as a great poet as well as performer. International contributors explore philosophical issues raised by his lyrics, books, and life (e.g., postmodern ambiguity, free will, evangelical Christianity). Dylan and Nietzsche's "Tarantula" writings are compared. The volume includes a discography. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The legions of Bob Dylan fans know that Dylan is not just a great composer, writer, and performer, but a great thinker as well. In Bob Dylan and Philosophy, eighteen philosophers analyze Dylans ethical positions, political commitments, views on gender and sexuality, and his complicated and controversial attitudes toward religion. All phases of Dylans output are covered, from his early acoustic folk ballads and anthem-like protest songs to his controversial switch to electric guitar to his sometimes puzzling, often profound music of the 1970s and beyond. The book examines different aspects of Dylans creative thought through a philosophical lens, including personal identity, negative and positive freedom, enlightenment and postmodernism in his social criticism, and the morality of bootlegging. An engaging introduction to deep philosophical truths, the book provides Dylan fans with an opportunity to learn about philosophy while impressing fans of philosophy with the deeper implications of his intellectual achievements.
