A few months ago, I had the pleasure of reading a book titled “Star Wars and Philosophy” (I’ll put a link to it at the bottom of the post). The book challenged me to think through the various philosophies that mold our favorite fandoms. I thought to myself, why not explore this topic more deeply on my own? So, I am going to start a series called Star Wars and philosophy and we will touch on topics like, “What are the ethical implications of the Clone army? What philosophies influence the Jedi? Is the Force an analogy for God or for a higher spirit?” Some of these topics have been touched on by authors and the book mentioned above; however, I plan on exploring this for myself. In addition, if this goes well, I hope to add other fandoms such as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
I will start this series in the next few days ideally. If you have any suggestions or thoughts please let me know!
