Travis Smith New Book Superhero Ethics

Travis Smith, Superhero Ethics (Templeton Press, 2018)

Adopting a classical ethical lens, this book examines what the popularity of superhero stories says about us, and to us, today -- and tries to get readers to think about which putative role models are actually worthy of our admiration. The book’s use of a contemporary cultural medium to examine real-life philosophical questions is in line with Concordia’s Strategic Directions, which encourage educators to ‘mix it up’.
