Buchrückseite

Can entertainment be dangerous?
 
Do ordinary moral rules apply in the arena?
 
Can philosophy help Katniss decide between Gale and Peeta?
 
Could muttations someday become a reality?
 
Can the world of the Hunger Games shine a light into the dark corners of our own world? Katniss Everdeen is "the girl who was on fire," but she is also the girl who makes us think, dream, question authority, and rebel. The postapocalyptic world of Panem's twelve districts is a divided society on the brink of war and struggling to survive, while the Capitol lives in the lap of luxury and pure contentment. At every turn in the Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss, Peeta, Gale, and their many allies wrestle with harrowing choices and ethical dilemmas that push them to the brink. This thoughtful guide draws on the work of Plato, Aristotle, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Charles Darwin, and other engaging philosophical thinkers to take you deeper into the story. It gives you new insights into the Hunger Games series and its key characters, plot lines, and themes, including war, authenticity, social class, personal identity, altruism, gender, art, fashion, and moral choice.

Reading the Hunger Games trilogy is entertaining and thrilling, but there is much more to the novels. It is a great tale about humanity and inhumanity, about how oppression is working and people are reacting to it, how violence distorts human relationships, and about what is important to one's life under these circumstances. The issues raised in the novels are the issues that have been discussed by philosphers over the centuries.

That is where "The Hunger Games and Philosophy" comes in. The authors highlight many questions raised by the novels and discuss them, thereby referring to some of the most prominent philosophers of the ancient past up to recent times. It is suprising how much Aristotle, Socrates, Kant, Hobbes & Co have to say about ardent issues which you come across in the Hunger Games trilogy. Take a look into the book an see the manifold topics covered.

Reading this book is an entertainment in itself, of course of the more intellectual type. However, as the target audience are non-professional philosophers, this intellectual challenge should not be a problem even for younger readers. The Hunger Games and Philosophy gave me a deeper insight into the trilogy and made me look at levels beyond the mere action - and provided a welcome update on philosophy.
