Review:

"This collection provides an engaging set of arguments about the meaning of Wonder Woman in a philosophical, feminist and cultural context. Accessible both to academic and general readers, it offers a useful introduction to an array of philosophical theories ranging from Aristotle to Foucault." - Rachel Harris, Australian Women's History Network. "The authors approach [Wonder Woman] as a serious work of fiction, worthy of study and debate, and with relevance for the questions of our own world. Whether a Wonder Woman fan who wants to dive deeper into Dianalysis, or a philosophy buff who is interested in how this pop culture phenomenon relate to the larger questions of philosophy and ethics, this is a book worth opening up." - Matthew Westfox- Creator, Superhero Ethics Podcast.

From the Back Cover:

Sexy woman and superhero, fully empowered human and at times even a god, Wonder Woman is as appealing as she is ambiguous. From her origins as feminist propaganda at the height of World War II to the first female lead in the blockbuster DC movie franchise, she is a reflection of, and challenge to, our norms, our values, our society. She exemplifies our ideals, while posing serious challenges to the place of those ideals in modern society.

The first book dedicated to the philosophical questions raised by this complex and enduringly iconic figure, Wonder Woman and Philosophy: The Amazonian Mystique brings together philosophers and scholars to uncover fascinating aspects of our favourite Amazonian princess and deep philosophical insights about ourselves.

Topics explored include origin stories and identity, propaganda and art, altruism and the ethics of care, Amazonians as transhumanists, eroticism and graphic novels, the crafting of a heroine, domination, relationships, the ethics of killing and torture, and many more.

Timely and provocative, Wonder Woman and Philosophy offers wonder-filled insights into the myriad philosophical issues surrounding the most popular female superhero of all time.
