The first look at the philosophy behind Stephenie Meyer's bestselling Twilight series.
Bella and Edward, and their family and friends, have faced countless dangers and philosophical dilemmas in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels. This book is the first to explore them, drawing on the wisdom of philosophical heavyweights to answer essential questions such as: What do the struggles of "vegetarian" vampires who control their biological urge for human blood say about free will? Are vampires morally absolved if they kill only animals and not people? From a feminist perspective, is Edward a romantic hero or is he just a stalker? Is Jacob "better" for Bella than Edward?
As absorbing as the Meyer novels themselves, Twilight and Philosophy:
Gives you a new perspective on Twilight characters, storylines, and themes.
Helps you gain fresh insights into the Twilight novels and movies.
Features an irresistible combination of vampires, romance, and philosophy.
Twilight and Philosophy is a must-have companion for every Twilight fan, whether you're new to the series or have followed it since the beginning.
