Kurzbeschreibung

2. Oktober 2008 Popular Culture & Philosophy (Buch 35)
Take a trip on the Starship Enterprise before the "Star Trek" film teleports itself into cinemas. The spirit of exploration that characterizes "Star Trek"'s various television and cinematic incarnations is also the driving force behind philosophical inquiry throughout human history. "Star Trek and Philosophy" share the mission of testing ideas from our past and present that can progressively improve our future.This volume gathers together twenty-one professional philosophers who recognize, as most other Trekkies have over the past 40 years, that "Star Trek" isn't merely escapist entertainment. Rather, "Star Trek" calls viewers back again and again to consider questions not only about the scientific prospects of interstellar travel, but also the inward journey to examine the human condition. The essays in this volume follow "Star Trek"'s inspiration to reach out to the farthest frontiers the mind may reach, while also delving deep into the human essence.Among the questions dealt with in this volume is how it's possible for persons from different cultural backgrounds to communicate with each other; whether there's value in the Stoic temperament of emotional detachment exhibited by Vulcans, and how difficult it may be to live such a logical life. These books teach philosophical wisdom by looking closely at entertainment icons. In each volume of this best-selling series, a team of sharp philosophical brains puts one pop culture icon (movie, TV show, or other topic) under the microscope, exposing its hidden philosophical implications in an instantly readable way.

Pressestimmen

"Humorously subtitled 'The Wrath of Kant, ' this book examines the relationship between Star Trek and various schools of philosophy, and enlists the help of 21 professional philosophers to show how the theories of philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Nietzsche made their way into the scripts of a network television show."--Annotation (c)2008 Book News Inc. Portland, OR

Synopsis

Take a trip on the Starship Enterprise before the "Star Trek" film teleports itself into cinemas. The spirit of exploration that characterizes "Star Trek"'s various television and cinematic incarnations is also the driving force behind philosophical inquiry throughout human history. "Star Trek and Philosophy" share the mission of testing ideas from our past and present that can progressively improve our future.This volume gathers together twenty-one professional philosophers who recognize, as most other Trekkies have over the past 40 years, that "Star Trek" isn't merely escapist entertainment. Rather, "Star Trek" calls viewers back again and again to consider questions not only about the scientific prospects of interstellar travel, but also the inward journey to examine the human condition. The essays in this volume follow "Star Trek"'s inspiration to reach out to the farthest frontiers the mind may reach, while also delving deep into the human essence.Among the questions dealt with in this volume is how it's possible for persons from different cultural backgrounds to communicate with each other; whether there's value in the Stoic temperament of emotional detachment exhibited by Vulcans, and how difficult it may be to live such a logical life.

These books teach philosophical wisdom by looking closely at entertainment icons. In each volume of this best-selling series, a team of sharp philosophical brains puts one pop culture icon (movie, TV show, or other topic) under the microscope, exposing its hidden philosophical implications in an instantly readable way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of fun! 12. Oktober 2009
Von C. Bongard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you like Star Trek at all, you should get this book.

The book is a lot of fun and highlights how suprisingly deep the writers of star trek has been over the years.

Borg vs Individualism.

Revenge vs Justice

Cloning and ethics and so much more.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid academic look at Star Trek themes 8. Februar 2013
Von Michael S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Star Trek and Philosophy does an excellent job of blending the themes of academia with the themes of Star Trek without feeling jarring in its transitions or forced in its comparisons. This book contains quality essays on a good range of topics from business ethics, to understanding time, to autonomy and theories of the self. Of particular interest is the chapter on business ethics set in the context of the Ferengi's selfish capitalist-like system and the Federation's elimination of poverty. There is an excellent examination of Adam Smith's theories of the free market, and the author does a fantastic job of showing how modern capitalism has strayed from Smith's ideas that capitalism must be grounded in the welfare of those whom the market serves.

Other areas of the book offer us a look at logical thought and humanity's ability to be illogical when necessary, referencing the several instances when Kirk was able to shut down computer systems through illogical semantic games. It also examines omnipotent power and whether or not such power is desirable for an evolving species. There is also a very good, thought-provoking examination of transporter mishaps, resulting in a questioning of what actually constitutes the self. Considering that this is a Star Trek book, you'll also find debates on genetic manipulation and the morality of scientific discoveries.

Many books that look into the themes of pop culture can result in shallow attempts at explaining high concepts. This book is not one of them. The depth of philosophical debate coupled with the smooth transition into examples from Star Trek creates a quality read that exercises both the imagination and the intellect.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Informative 9. Oktober 2009
Von Michelle Entezari - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
What I liked:
-Specific references to a lot of episodes of all of the series from the original through the most recent.
-Specific references to the philosophy of several famous philosophers.
-Covered topics I have pondered upon, such as why we want to live in the Federation
-Managed to work in a couple of the humorous Ferengi laws of acquisition

What kept me from giving it 5:
-Could have been a little more entertaining, there were some dry patches - I actually enjoyed an audio tape of the Ferengi rules of Acquisition more from an entertainment perspective
-Perhaps taken a less of a classical philosophy view on why people like Star Trek and instead branched out to suggest some more revolutionary ideas on why we like it so much - kind of like the movie Trekkies started to get into

4.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting study of various philosophical issues relating to Star Trek themes. 27. Februar 2012
Von Joseph J. Truncale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Like many longtime fans of Star Trek I love anything to do with the series. Whether it was the Star Trek movies or television series I have enjoyed seeing or reading anything to do with Star Trek. As a lifetime student of the martial arts and the warrior philosophy, I loved reading "The Klingon Way." That book focused on quotes from Star Trek relating to the basic principles of Klingon's warrior philosophy. However, this book is quite different in that it deals with the deeper aspects of philosophy as it relates to various Star Trek themes.

To be frank, if you do not have at least some basic philosophy education, you may become lost or bored with this volume. Believe it or not, this is actually a serious academic approach to philosophical issues relating to Star Trek themes.
Most of the major Earth philosophers and their basic premises are explored to some degree in this book. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Bacon, Nietzsche, Buddha, Descartes, Hume, Hegel, James, Kant, Mill, Spinoza and many other philosophers and thinkers are mentioned in this book.

This text is organized into four sections. There are a total of 18 chapters. The first section deals with seeking out new ideas: Major philosophical themes in Star Trek. The second section explores Go Boldly, yet morally and federation ethics. The third section covers Social and religious values of the future. The final section grapples with multiple enterprises and metaphysical conundrums from A to E. Each chapter has a different writer with backgrounds in philosophy. I did not agree with some of the conclusions these writers came to when evaluating a specific subject area; nevertheless, if you are a Star Trek fan who also loves philosophy, you will want to read this book.
Rating: 4 Stars Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A Poetic Tribute to Warriors)

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Worthy Read 8. September 2012
Von Huck Finn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is great on philosophy. I like how it takes complex ideas and uses Star Trek as a background, a unique popular icon, and then converting that background into platforms for serious thought and historical comment.

The downside of this book is that the author forgets that Star Trek, after all is done and said, is basically for entertainment and not created to be a deliberate foundation for academic exploitation.
