Another book in the Blackwell Philosophy and pop Culture Series focusing on the X-Men. This book uses the X-Men comics and movies to introduce several philosophical concepts. Different authors touch on topics such as the meaning of being a person or mutant and what we can know about mutants - an idea that easily extrapolates to classes or cultures. Others touch on morality, identity, women's issues, synthetic biology, among others.

Authors will help you see Magneto's point of view, and why Magneto and Xavier can maintain a strong friendship in spite of significant philosophical differences. What is the human role, and what is the meaning of race.

As usual, I've found all of these books easy to read and interesting. They each introduce philosophical concepts using icons of pop culture making them easy-to understand and to remember.

In general, I thought this book had better philosophy than others, I found it more interesting. A couple of authors seemed to talk more about the X-Men than of philosophy, but they were interesting to read as well. ( )

Some of the essays in this collection are really very engaging, thoughtful, and not so academic. SOme of them are not all of those things. The majority are thought provoking and fun but some of it is very dry. Read, but with some reservations ( )

NO OF PAGES: 158 SUB CAT I: Humor SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Jewish curses are as much a part of the American scene as bagels and lox. Both are an exotic delicacy, but the former is also proof that man does not live by bagels and lox alone. Jewish curses are a great emotional gratification, guaranteed to stave off incipient ulcers in the speaker. What could be more soul satisfying than to fling at an officious bus driver: "You should only grow like an onion, with your head in the ground!" . . .NOTES: Donated by Raina. SUBTITLE:
