Read full description of the books:



The comic book superheroes ? Superman, Batman, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, X-Men, and many others ? have proved to be a powerful and enduring thread in popular culture, a rich source of ideas for moviemakers, novelists, and philosophers. "Superheroes and Philosophy" brings together 16 leading philosophers and some of the most creative people in the world of comics, from storywriters to editors to critics, to examine the deeper issues that resonate from the hyperbolic narratives and superhuman actions of this heroic world. The comic book narratives of superheroes wrestle with profound and disturbing issues in original ways: the definitions of good and evil, the limits of violence as an efficacious means, the perils of enforcing justice outside the law, the metaphysics of personal identity, and the definition of humanity. The book also features original artwork specially commissioned from some of the most popular of today's comic book artists.

Born Thomas Victor Morris, and known by his students as "TV Morris", he is the first philosopher in history to appear in network TV commercials, where he has served as the national spokesman for Winnie the Pooh, Disney Home Videos. He is also the only thinker ever to engage in early morning philosophy with Regis Philbin, on his talk show, and on "The Today Show" with Matt Lauer, among many other national broadcasts. Tom is known for bringing the insights of the great thinkers into the drama of everyday life with high energy and good humor. His message is helping to change lives and revolutionize business practices everywhere.

He may be the world's happiest philosopher.
