Philosophy and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

by Nicholas Joll (Editor) - £15.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780230291126 | ISBN 10: 0230291120

This is the 'philosophy and. .' book that really needed to be written because it is about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For (to paraphrase the great man himself) Hitchhiker's is not above a little philosophy in the same way that the sea is not above the sky. Moreover: this edited collection combines accessibility and some humour with rigour. It contains an introduction, nine chapters, a glossary, and multiple indexes.
 
Topics covered include the meaning of life (and '42'), vegetarianism, the ethics of entertainment, artificial intelligence, multiple worlds, God, and philosophical method.
