Lost and Philosophy: The Island Has Its Reasons | [Sharon M. Kaye]

Lost and Philosophy: The Island Has Its Reasons

Sometimes it feels like you need a Ph.D. to follow the show. But you don't. You just need this book in which 21 philosophers explore the deep questions we all face as survivors on this planet: Does "everything happen for a reason"? Is torture ever justified? Who are the Others? How do we know we're not patients in Hurley's psych ward? What if the Dharma Intitiative is experimenting on us? Desmond may not be able to save Charlie, but this book could save you.
