2012 Holiday Gifts Roundup: Game of Thrones and Philosophy

If you have a philosophical bent, this book might be of interest. Even if you don’t, it might be something you’ll want to add to your extensive GRRM collection.

Explore humanity and the nature of good vs evil in this treatise on George RR Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire. Part of The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series, the book explores the ethics and morality of medieval times under the light of modern philosophical theory. This book is probably a light read for those in the philosophy field (all three of you), but fans of the series will probably appreciate a structured look at the complexities of society in the world of Westeros.

Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? Morons. But maybe, just maybe, they’d have something to say about the characters within this fantasy book series.

Available in paperback and Kindle editions.
