Philosophy Comics

Margreet de Heers’ philosophy comic book is reviewed by Suzette Chan at Sequential Tart here.

Philosophy can sometimes be presented as dogma, removing the pursuit from real lives and preserving it in the ivory tower. Refreshingly, Margreet de Heer’s graphic novel Philosophy: A Discovery in Comics (published by NMB), characterizes philosophy as a process, not a product.

De Heer leads readers through the book with questions such as “What is thinking?” and “What is reality?” — questions that she began to ask when she was a child. Personalizing the questions reminds us of how philosophy is rooted in our curiosity about the universe, and also creates the feeling that we are companions in this enterprise.
