Superheroes and Philosophy by Tom Morris

Book Description

The comic book naratives of superheroes wrestle with profound and disturbing issues in original ways: the definitions of good and evil, the limits of violence as an effective means, the perils of enforcing justice outside the law, the metaphysics of personal identity, and the definition of humanity. Superheroes and Philosophy tackles these and other philosophical questions in an intellectual yet engaging way suitable for any comic book fan.

Books By Author Tom Morris

Jeep Off-road by Tom Morris Jeep Off-road, Paperback (June 2007)

The original four-wheel drive was none other that the jeep, over 65 years ago. Off-Roading is what Jeeps were made for. This work covers this sport from various angles with information and color photographs of jeeps in action, on the tracks, resting, being prepared, modified, and the courses themselves. It also includes advice on techniques.

Matter of Life and Death by Tom Morris Matter of Life and Death, Paperback (May 2007)

It's 1945. A young airman jumps to certain death from his burning aircraft. His last words are to a girl he has never met: "I love you June. You are life and I am leaving you." However, following an angelic blunder, caused by a classic English pea-souper, Peter Carter miraculously survives and finds June in the flesh. But things are not so simple.

'Nights at the Circus' by Tom Morris 'Nights at the Circus', Paperback (March 2006)

It's 1899 and the world crackles with possibilities. Swinging above them all is a showbiz sensation; a fierce, vulgar, pant-droppingly sexy trapeze artist called Fevvers. This story charts her unlikely love affair with Walser, a world-weary journalist on a mission to expose her as a fake.

Stoic Art of Living by Tom Morris Stoic Art of Living, Paperback (April 2004)
