Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy giveaway

Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy
Curiouser and Curiouser
Series Editor: William Irwin
Editor: Richard Brian Davis - my review

Description from publisher's site:
Should the Cheshire Cat’s grin make us reconsider the nature of reality?

Can Humpty Dumpty make words mean whatever he says they mean?

Can drugs take us down the rabbit hole?

Is Alice a feminist icon?

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has fascinated children and adults alike for generations.

Why does Lewis Carroll introduce us to such oddities as blue caterpillars who smoke hookahs, cats whose grins remain after their heads have faded away, and a White Queen who lives backwards and remembers forwards?

Is it all just nonsense?

Was Carroll under the influence?

This book probes the deeper underlying meaning in the Alice books, and reveals a world rich with philosophical life lessons. Tapping into some of the greatest philosophical minds that ever lived—Aristotle, Hume, Hobbes, and Nietzsche—Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy explores life’s ultimate questions through the eyes of perhaps the most endearing heroine in all of literature.
