Batman is one of the most complex characters ever to appear in comic books, graphic novels, and on the big screen. What philosophical trials does this superhero confront in order to keep Gotham safe? Combing through 70 years of comic books, television shows, and movies, Batman and Philosophy explores how the Dark Knight grapples with ethical conundrums, moral responsibility, his identity crisis, the moral weight he carries to avenge his murdered parents, and much more. How does this caped crusader measure up against the teachings of Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Kierkegaard, and Lao Tzu?

Somewhere in the middle
The use of comic book characters to help the reader understand philosophical theory.
This an interesting book to read if you like comic books and have a philosophical bent in your thinking. If one or the other of these do not interest you this is not the book for you.
I have no idea, I guess this is not a book for my taste
Allot of things get repeated several times
If you get this book, you might like it. But this is not my kind of book.
Huh? Sorry, I must have dozed off! This book put me to sleep. Time for me to find a new genre! Yawn - Stretch!
