Imagine Plato as a wrestling superstar of ancient Greece, Nietzsche as the original ubermensch, and Bohidharma as the grand master of kung fu. These are not just great thinkers they also make great comics. Action Philosophers details the lives and thoughts of history's A-list brain trust in hip and humorous comic book fashion. All nine issues of the award-winning, best-selling comic book series have been collected into a single volume, making this a comprehensive cartoon history of ideas from pre-Socratics to Jacques Derrida, including four new stories. You'll never have more fun getting the real scoop on the big ideas that have made the world the mess we live in today! ” Tom Morris (Author of Philosophy for Dummies, If Aristotle Ran General Motors, and If Harry Potter Ran General Electric).

In this third and final trade paperback collection, Van Lente and Dunlavey return once more to their comics précis of philosophy with a survey of Greek philosophers, a Law and Order–style trial of God with Kant as his epistemological attorney, and a hilariously spot-on parody of Peanuts (You're a Good Man, John Stuart Mill), before closing with a lightning round that runs a gauntlet of 11 philosophers, ranging from Lao-Tzu to David Hume, in 32 pages. As with most of the series, it negotiates the turbid waters of philosophical theory not only with ease but laugh-out-loud irreverence. This is no dumbed down My First Philosophy book for grade schoolers; although it gilds the theories of philosophers like Epictetus the Stoic with word balloons and cartoon slapstick, it never shies away from complex ideas, even if that means occasional lapses into philosophical jargon (in a synthetical cognition, you augment an intuition with a conception). Van Lente and Dunlavey engage some of philosophy's most recondite notions with wit, clarity and brilliant accessibility, but intelligence is always presumed and demanded. Only the most precocious of children need apply. (Nov.)
