The first look at the philosophy behind Stephenie Meyer'sbestselling Twilight series

Bella and Edward, and their family and friends, have facedcountless dangers and philosophical dilemmas in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels. This book is the first to explore them, drawing on the wisdom of philosophical heavyweights to answeressential questions such as: What do the struggles of 'vegetarian'vampires who control their biological urge for human blood sayabout free will? Are vampires morally absolved if they kill onlyanimals and not people? From a feminist perspective, is Edward aromantic hero or is he just a stalker? Is Jacob 'better' for Bellathan Edward?

As absorbing as the Meyer novels themselves, Twilight and Philosophy:

* Gives you a new perspective on Twilight characters, storylines, and themes
* Helps you gain fresh insights into the Twilight novelsand movies
* Features an irresistible combination of vampires, romance, andphilosophy

Twilight and Philosophy is a must-have companion forevery Twilight fan, whether you're new to the series or havefollowed it since the beginning.
