Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is more commonly known by its abbreviated name Alice in Wonderland. This classic novel was written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll in 1865 and tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole and stumbles upon a fantasy world filled with anthropomorphic animals. At first glance the plot and dialog in the novel seems like nonsense, but are actually filled with inner-meaning, logic, and truisms. This is a richly philosophic tale that analyzes being and non-being, nonsense and language games, perception and reality, and even drug culture. This is the first book to delve into Alice's wonderland and analyze the philosophy behind the tale while comparing the work to the philosophy of Socrates, Derrida, Rorty, and Wittgenstein, among many others.
