"Wizard of Oz" and Philosophy
Wizard of Oz and Philosophy by Randall E. Auxier
Book DescriptionFrom the bedtime story by L. Frank Baum to the classic 1939 film, no story has captured the imaginations of generations of children -- and adults -- like The Wizard of Oz. The story of Dorothy's journey through Oz, the colorful characters, places, songs, and dialogue have permeated popular culture around the world. The contributors to this volume take a very close look at The Wizard of Oz and ask the tough questions about this wonderful tale. They wonder if someone can possess a virtue without knowing it, and if the realm of Oz was really the dream or if Kansas was the dream. Why does water melt the Wicked Witch of the West and why does Toto seem to know what the other characters can't seem to figure out? The articles included tackle these compelling questions and more, encouraging readers to have discussions of their own.
