4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting book to dip in to., 24 Nov. 2010
This review is from: The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy: Hogwarts for Muggles (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I bought the Twilight version of this well established Philosophy series and my son was so hooked on it that when this came out I just had to get it. As a fan of Harry Potter I thought I would take to this quite well and to a large extent I did. Some of the chapters, each of which covers a different subject, are fascinating. The Love Potion chapter that deals with the philosophical implications of forcing someone to act against their will is superb and thought provoking, as is the Severus Snape section. However, some of the chapters are just filler, with the most appalling example being the sensationalist 'Is Dumbledore Gay?' which is tripe from beginning to end and to a lesser extent the messy section on Hogwarts education.
That said, there is more than enough here to fascinate the Harry Potter fan, and if, like Sophie's World, it introduces young people to philosophy that has to be a good thing.
