Finally a book about philosophy and superpowers !

Philosophy is everywhere…even in our favorite superheroes! Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Darth Vader, Hulk and Daredevil are going to help you love Kant, Epicurus, Nietzsche and company!

Elodie Denis and Jonas Mary are fond of philosophy and superheroes, so why not combine them in a flash bomb book? Throughout the book, they use key philosophy concepts to examine the actions of superheroes. They examine existential questions such as: Is Superman Kantian? How can the Hulk know himself? Has Darth Vader solved his Oedipus complex?

Discover all the answers to questions the great philosophers have been asking themselves for centuries, served right up on Captain America’s vibranium platter.

The first totally addictive philosophy book!
