ALIEN AND PHILOSOPHY: I INFEST, THEREFORE I AM

PrintE-mail Written by Richard Thomas

Alien and Philosophy: I Infest, Therefore I Am presents a philosophical exploration of the shared cinematic universe in which Alien and Prometheus take place. The book features contributions from an acclaimed team of scholars of philosophy and pop culture, led by highly experienced volume editors: Jeffrey A. Ewing, Kevin S. Decker and William Irwin.

 

Together this team of movie philosophers explore a huge range of topics that include the philosophy of fear, Just Wars, bio-weaponry, feminism and matriarchs, perfect killers, contagion, violation, employee rights and Artificial Intelligence. The extensively researched 240-pages also looks at Alien-designer H.R. Giger's bio-mechanical aesthetics, as well as the literary influences of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. The effect the legacy of Vietnam had on science fiction, particularity James Cameron's script for Aliens, is particularly explored in meticulous detail.
