True Blood and Philosophy : We Wanna Think Bad Things with You

True Blood and Philosophy : We Wanna Think Bad Things with You

Description

Teeming with complex, mythical characters in the shape of vampires, telepaths, shapeshifters, and the like, True Blood, the popular HBO series adapted from Charlaine Harris's bestselling Southern Vampire Mysteries, has a rich collection of themes to explore, from sex and romance to bigotry and violence to death and immortality. The goings-on in the mythical town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, where vampires satiate their blood lust and openly commingle with ordinary humans, present no shortages of juicy metaphysical morsels to sink your teeth into. Now True Blood and Philosophy calls on the minds of some of history's great thinkers to perform some philosophical bloodletting on such topics as Sookie and the metaphysics of mindreading; Maryann and sacrificial religion; werewolves, shapeshifters, and personal identity; vampire politics, evil, desire, and much more. Smart and entertaining, True Blood and Philosophy provides food--or blood--for thought, and a fun, new way to look at the series.
