The Philosophy of Joss Whedon, Hardback Book

The Philosophy of Joss Whedon Hardback

Edited by Dean A. Kowalski, S. Evan Kreider

Part of the The Philosophy of Popular Culture series


Every generation produces a counterculture icon. Joss Whedon, creater of the long-running television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is famed for his subversive wit, rich characters, and extraordinary plotlines.

His renown has only grown with subsequent creations, including Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, and the innovative online series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Through premises as unusual as a supernatural detective agency run by a vampire and a Western set in outer space, Whedon weaves stories about characters forced to make commonplace moral decisions under the most bizarre of circumstances.

The Philosophy of Joss Whedon examines Whedon's plots and characterizations to reveal their philosophical takes on the limits of personal freedom, sexual morality, radical evil, and Daoism.
