Book News Annotation:

Fifteen essays by scholars place the rock band U2 within a philosophical context. Some chapters look at the existential struggles portrayed in U2's music, while others consider the philosophical basis of the band's ethics and politics. U2's albums and Grammy Awards are listed at the back of the volume, along with some Internet resources. Editor Wrathall teaches philosophy at Brigham Young U. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Is it possible to be a committed Christian and a rock superstar? Can political activists make good music? Do hugely successful rock bands really care about AIDS and poverty in Africa, or is it just another image-enhancing schtick? U2 and Philosophy ponders these and other seeming dichotomies in the career of the Irish supergroup. For over two decades, U2 has been one of the biggest acts in rock music. Theyve produced over a dozen platinum and multiplatinum records and won 15 Grammy Awards. Critics everywhere have praised the bands thoughtful, complex lyrics and the artistry of their music. At the same time, Bono, the groups lead singer, has dedicated himself to political and social causes, blurring the line between rock star and respected statesman. Offering fresh insight into the bands music and activism, these thought-provoking essays allows fans to discover philosophy through the eyes of U2, and rediscover U2 through the eyes of philosophers.
