30 Days of Bookery, day 19: Win a copy of The Avengers and Philosophy: Earth's Mightiest Thinkers


What's the 30 Days of Bookery?

Are you a thinker of thoughts? Do you love the Avengers? Then I have the book for you. The Avengers and Philosophy: Earth's Mightiest Thinkers edited by Mark D. White.



Summary from Goodreads

Avengers assemble! Tackling intriguing dilemmas and issues that no single great philosopher can withstand, this powerful book enlists the brainpower of an A-list team of history's most prominent thinkers to explore the themes behind the action of Marvel Comics' all-star superhero team.

Arms you with new insights into the characters and themes of "The Avengers." Deepens your appreciation both of "The Avengers" comics and the Joss Whedon movie adaptation. Answers the philosophical questions you've always had about Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including: Can a reformed criminal become a superhero? Can an android love a human? If a hero beats his wife, is he still a hero? Helps you think differently about the members of the superhero team--Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the others.

This book is mostly based around the comics, and includes more of the Avengers than were in the movie. So if you like comics and in-depth analysis of pop culture, this is the book for you.
