Editorial Reviews

'The authors ofInception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For will take you downwards and forwards. They'll plant seeds that grow in your mind. When you come out of it on the other side, you'll find that many things you think you believe never really made sense, and you'll wonder why you ever thought they did. Pick it up, start reading, wait for the kick.'-D.E. Wittkower, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Old Dominion University'Inception is one of the most philosophically compelling movies to come out in the past twenty years or more. ReadingInception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For is like waking from a dream. It could be just that.'-Richard Greene, co-editor ofDexter and Philosophy 'Not sinceThe Matrix has there been a movie so philosophically rich as Christopher Nolan'sInception. If I had Dom Cobb's powers, I would plant just one simple idea-resilient, highly contagious-in the minds of bookstore browsers everywhere: ReadInception and Philosophy: Ideas to Die For.' -Amy Kind, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College'Nothing can kick-start excited conversations on the gnarly nature of the mind quite like the movie Inception and a bunch of passionate philosophers.'-Luke Dick, writer, artist, singer, philosophy professor
