9780060933265: The Ethics of

Though the world of Star Trek is clearly set in the future, its attitudes, politics and culture have always reflected the mores of today. Perhaps that's why this phenomenal series has kept us fascinated, challenged and inspired - as well as entertained - for nearly thirty-five years. Using episodes from all four Star Trek series, as well as examples from Plato, Aristotle, Sartre and other great philosopher's of the past, The Ethics of Star Trek explores the answers to these and other important ethical questions: Why is good stronger than evil? If the Prime Directive is so inviolable, why does Kirk always seem to break it? Would Nietzsche have made a good starship captain? Are rational beings the only life-forms entitled to our respect? Join Dr. Judith Barad and Ed Robertson as they take the complex, intriguing and often confusing subject of ethics and make it practical, understandable and accessible - for this century and beyond!
