“A hip, easily digestible summary of weighty material that will appeal to the masses and still keep the interest of the learned.” – Philosophy Now

This ain't your grandpappy's dusty old philosophy class! It's the philosophy seminar your college ethics professor wished he could teach! It's... the definitive tenth-anniversary edition of Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey's award-winning, best-selling
Action Philosophers!

Study the tenets of Plato, the wrestling superstar from ancient Greece, learn the lessons of Nietzsche, the original übermensch, and meditate on the messages of Bodhidharma, a kung fu master. Laugh, learn, laugh some more, and ponder the messages of history's great thinkers as Van Lente and Dunlavey deliver this comprehensive cartoon history from the pre-Socratics to Jacques Derrida!

• Features the entire award–winning
Action Philosophers! plus a new eight-page story!

REVIEWS

Comics Beat

•Comics website and blog

“This smart and witty non-fiction graphic book is the introduction to philosophy that should be required reading. I wish it had been around when I struggled through some of these works!”

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“Van Lente and Dunlavey incorporate various movie and comic book genres, making some philosophers look like superheroes, some as monster-god-things, and, most awesomely, Confucius as King Kong … The result is both humorous, informative, and fun to read.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“Totally irreverent and maniacally imaginative.”
