9781118386576: Ender's Game and Philosophy: The Logic Gate is Down

A threat to humanity portending the end of our species lurks in the cold recesses of space. Our only hope is an eleven-year-old boy.

Celebrating the long-awaited release of the movie adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel about highly trained child geniuses fighting a race of invading aliens, this collection of original essays probes key philosophical questions raised in the narrative, including the ethics of child soldiers, politics on the internet, and the morality of war and genocide.

  • Original essays dissect the diverse philosophical questions raised in Card’s best-selling sci-fi classic, winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards and which has been translated in 29 languages
  • Publication coincides with planned release of major motion picture adaptation of Ender’s Game starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford
  • Treats a wealth of core contemporary issues in morality and ethics, including child soldiers, the best kind of education and the use and misuse of global communications for political purposes
  • A stand-out addition to the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series

From the Back Cover :

Is the deception and manipulation of Andrew “Ender” Wiggin morally justified?

Is it ethical to use brilliant children as soldiers?

Can there ever really be peace between two completely different cultures?

Does Ender’s ‘final solution’ in the destruction of the ‘buggers’ accord with the ethics of conducting warfare?

Few books are considered to be both the best science fiction novel of all time, and useful for teaching actual military strategy. Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game is just such a book, depicting highly trained child geniuses saving the world from insect-like alien ‘buggers’. Timed for its release to coincide with the release of a motion picture adaptation of the novel, this book dissects key questions raised by Card and his legions of fans, including the ethics of child soldiers, the morality of tactics and technology in warfare, genocide, interspecies communication, and much more.

The contemporary relevance of Ender’s Game can hardly be overstated: until recently it was on the US Marine Corps professional reading list. This compelling collection unpicks the warp and woof of philosophical references that form the novel’s themes and narrative arc, and is a major addition to the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series.
