What makes humans different from other animals, what humans are entitled to do to other species, whether time travel is possible, what limits should be placed on science and technology, the morality and practicality of genetic engineering—these are just some of the philosophical problems raised by Planet of the Apes. Planet of the Apes and Philosophy looks at all the deeper issues involved in the Planet of the Apes stories. It covers the entire franchise, from Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel Monkey Planet to the successful 2012 reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The chapters reflect diverse points of view, philosophical, religious, and scientific. The ethical relations of humans with animals are explored in several chapters, with entertaining and incisive observations on animal intelligence, animal rights, and human-animal interaction. Genetic engineering is changing humans, animals, and plants, raising new questions about the morality of such interventions. The scientific recognition that humans and chimps share 99 percent of their genes makes a future in which non-human animals acquire greater importance a distinct possibility. Planet of the Apes is the most resonant of all scientific apocalypse myths.

In 1986, the comic-book world experienced a profound paradigm shift, thanks to writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons. Gone were the long-held notions that crime-fighters always did the morally right thing for the intellectually right reason, that heroes and villains were rigidly defined constants, that good always prevailed over evil, and that happy endings were a foregone conclusion. In their place, there was Watchmen. With DC Comics soon to bring Watchmen's characters into its mainstream continuity, and with a Watchmen TV show reportedly in the works, it's time to reexamine all that has come before. Watching Time: The Unauthorized Watchmen Chronology contains: A detailed history encapsulating every known event from all corners of the Watchmen franchise, including not only the better-known tales, but also viral videos and websites, trading cards, unproduced scripts, and other ancillary sources. A mini-"crimeline" summarizing the crimes and heroics of masked crime-fighters and supervillains throughout Watchmen history. A foreword by noted comic book guru Brian Cronin, whose thousands of meticulously researched articles have enthralled comics fans for years. A nostalgic essay by Duy Tano, creator of the popular blog The Comics Cube, explaining why Watchmen is simultaneously dated and timeless. And a gallery showcasing nearly 250 covers from the Watchmen comics, trade-paperback collections, DVDs, Blu-rays, reference books, and video games. Designed both for fans new to Watchmen and for those who can identify Hooded Justice's parents, Ozymandias's four islands, Silk Spectre's favorite crooner, Mothman's family butler, and Rorschach's breakfast food of choice, Watching Time tells you everything you need to know about the history and characters of Alan Moore's Hugo Award-winning epic."

Too Clever for Our Own Good closely studies the phenomenon of 'evolution through culture.' Unlike the 'evolution through genetics, ' typical in other creatures, this uniquely human process hinges upon making and using myriad cultural extensions of our own creation, devices both material and nonmaterial. These concrete and abstract cultural extensions, such as clothing, shelter, tools, language, ethics, and social organizations, have enormously enhanced our capacity for controlling nature, other people, and ourselves. The author draws upon his own background in the natural and social sciences to examine a wide array of human experiences, ranging from the use of concrete technological inventions to that of more symbolic extensions like logic, metaphor, and self-image. In this exploration, attention is called not only to the constructive power of these 'tools, ' but also, and more significantly, to their often overlooked, negative consequences. The critical analysis of the role of cultural extensions in human evolution is relevant for both general readers and students or specialists in human sciences and educatio

Welcome to the Real History of Earth. You will not find this material in your high school or college history classes. In fact, the so-called “powers that be” who appear to control the educational process on this planet definitely DO NOT want you to have this information. It is said that knowledge is power. The purpose of this book is to empower you to live an awakened life, full of creativity and compassion. Knowing how and why things are the way they are on Earth gives each of us the power to make effective changes, both within ourselves and the world. If you are a physicist, biologist, archaeologist, anthropologist or economist, this material will likely challenge your deepest and most cherished ideas of reality. Due to the world of the Internet, the ideas presented herein can be researched and investigated thoroughly, and the author encourages you to do so. This book explores several deep questions that have plagued humanity since time began, including such timeless classics as “Why is there so much suffering on Earth?” and “How do we break out of our self-imposed prison of negative thoughts and beliefs?” We will also answer the question of how we came to be on this small planet at the edge of a rather average galaxy, with our racial and ethnic mix, languages and cultural habits. Also, we will tread on some “sacred cows,” including the belief that humanity evolved from the ape, and the idea that this is the most advanced civilization that has existed on Earth (both incorrect assumptions). We urge you to keep an open mind while reading this book. Do not blindly accept or reject anything that is being said. Unless a mind is open, there is no way to attain greater knowledge and wisdom. Have you ever tried pouring liquid into a closed container? So, dear readers, fasten your seat belt and open the book for a wonderful ride!
