Star Wars and Philosophy by Kevin S. Decker, Jason T. Eberl (.M4B)

Star Wars and Philosophy: More Powerful than You Can Possibly Imagine: Popular Culture and Philosophy by Kevin S. Decker, Jason T. Eberl
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 223 MB
Overview: The Star Wars films continue to revolutionize science fiction, creating new standards for cinematographic excellence and permeating popular culture around the world. The films feature many complex themes ranging from good versus evil and moral development and corruption to religious faith and pragmatism, forgiveness and redemption, and many others.
The essays in this volume tackle the philosophical questions from these blockbuster films including: Was Anakin predestined to fall to the Dark Side? Are the Jedi truly role models of moral virtue? Why would the citizens and protectors of a democratic republic allow it to descend into a tyrannical empire? Is Yoda a peaceful Zen master or a great warrior, or both? Why is there both a light and a dark side of the Force? Star Wars and Philosophy ponders the depths of these subjects and asks what it truly means to be mindful of the "living force".
"A real ‘tour de Force’! .a terrific read for any reflective person gripped by George Lucas’s archetypal space saga." (Steven A. Galipeau, author of The Journey of Luke Skywalker)
"I have a good feeling about this book. You’ll thoroughly enjoy it as you follow your path on the love of wisdom." (John M. Porter, author of The Tao of Star Wars)

Red Star over Hollywood by Ronald Radosh, Allis Radosh

Red Star over Hollywood by Ronald Radosh, Allis Radosh
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.3 MB
Overview: Until now, Hollywood’s political history has been dominated by a steady stream of films and memoirs decrying the nightmare of the Red Scare. But Ronald and Allis Radosh show that the real drama of that era lay in the story of the movie stars, directors and especially screenwriters who joined the Communist Party or traveled in its orbit, and made the Party the focus of their political and social lives. The authors’ most controversial discovery is that during the investigations of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, the Hollywood Reds themselves were beset by doubts and disagreements about their disloyalty to America, and their own treatment by the Communist Party. Abandoned by their old CP allies, they faced the Blacklist alone.
