Untangle the complex web of philosophical dilemmas of Spidey and his world - in time for the release of "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie. Since Stan Lee and Marvel introduced "Spider-Man in Amazing Fantasy number 15" in 1962, everyone's favorite webslinger has had a long career in comics, graphic novels, cartoons, movies, and even on Broadway. In this book some of history's most powerful philosophers help us explore the enduring questions and issues surrounding this beloved superhero: Is Peter Parker to blame for the death of his uncle? Does great power really bring great responsibility? Can Spidey champion justice and be with Mary Jane at the same time? Finding your way through this web of inquiry, you'll discover answers to these and many other thought-provoking questions. This title gives you a fresh perspective and insights on Peter Parker and Spider-Man's story lines and ideas. It examines important philosophical issues and questions, such as: What is it to live a good life? Do our particular talents come with obligations? What role should friendship play in life? And, is there any meaning to life? This title views Spider-Man through the lens of some of history's most influential thinkers, from Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, and Immanuel Kant to Nietszche, William James, Ayn Rand, and Alasdair MacIntyre.
