The essential companion to Stieg Larssons bestselling trilogy and director David Finchers 2011 film adaptation Stieg Larssons bestselling Millennium Trilogy- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest-is an international phenomenon. These books express Larssons lifelong war against injustice, his ethical beliefs, and his deep concern for womens rights. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Philosophy probes the compelling philosophical issues behind the entire trilogy. What philosophies do Lisbeth Salander and Kant have in common? To catch a criminal, can Lisbeth and Mikael be criminals themselves? Can revenge be ethical? Drawing on some of historys greatest philosophical minds, this book gives fresh insights into Larssons ingeniously plotted tale of crime and corruption. Looks at compelling philosophical issues such as a feminist reading of Lisbeth Salander, Aristotelian arguments for why we love revenge, how Kant can explain why so many women sleep with Mikael Blomkvist, and many more Includes a chapter from a colleague of Larssons-who worked with him in anti-Nazi activities-that explores Larssons philosophical views on skepticism and quotes from never-before-seen correspondence with Larsson Offers new insights into the novels key characters, including Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, and investigates the author, Stieg Larsson As engrossing as the quest to free Lisbeth Salander from her past, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Philosophy is ideal reading for anyone interested in unraveling the subtext and exploring the greater issues at work in the story.
