Take a magic carpet ride through Disney's wonderful world of films and entertainment experiences, and discover the wisdom within its most popular and enduring stories

Philosophy begins in wonder , and there's no question that Disney's immersive worlds and iconic characters have enchanted generations of children and adults alike, inviting us to escape the mundane into a world of fantasy, imagination, and infinite possibility. In Disney and Philosophy , essays from thirty-two deep-thinking Disneyphiles chart a course through the philosophical world of Disney, tapping into the minds of the great sages of the ages-Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, Descartes, and Goofy-to explore universal questions of freedom, personal identity, morality, family, and friendship:

  • Can Sleeping Beauty know that she's not dreaming?
  • Does turning our emotions and memories "inside out" tell us who we are?
  • What can Toy Story and Wall-E teach us about being human?
  • Is hakuna matata really such a problem-free philosophy?

If you've ever asked who you are, what is right, or what your purpose is, Disney and Philosophy will spark your curiosity and imagination with a whole new world of unexpected insight into the Magic Kingdom.
