Ender's Game and Philosophy: Genocide Is Child's Play
Ender's Game and Philosophy brings together over thirty philosophers to engage in wide-ranging discussion on the troubling, exciting, and fascinating issues raised in and amidst the excitement and fear of Orson Scott Card's novels and Gavin Hood's film. The authors of Ender's Game and Philosophy challenge readers to confront and work through the conceptual and emotional challenges that Ender's Game presents, bringing a new light on the idea of a just war, the virtues of the soldier, the nature of childhood, the social value and moral corruption of lies and deception, the practices of education and of leadership, and the serious work of playing games. -- Publisher website.
