HASH(0x990a7278) out of 5 stars Great way to introduce philosophy 18 Feb. 2010
By Lee Braver - Published on
Format: Paperback
While many attempts to "make philosophy relevant" to beginners come across as forced and artificial, _Philosophy Through Video Games_ does an excellent job of showing how important philosophical problems naturally arise from thinking about video games. The issues discussed range from the very old to the cutting edge, some of which are sure to intrigue anyone who enjoys both video games and intensive reflection but has not been able to bring the two together in any meaningful way. Cogburn and Silcox are very good at explaining difficult issues clearly and helpfully, making them both understandable and important without presupposing any previous knowledge of philosophy.

Anyone looking for a new way to bring students into the oldest discipline should read this book. I plan on using it for a first-year course very soon.
