Imagining Better: Philosophical Issues in Harry Potter (Reason Papers Special Issue)
I am very excited to announce the publication in Reason Papers of my article: "Harry Potter and Humanity: Choices, Love, and Death" (PDF).
This is a special issue of Reason Papers: "Imagining Better: Philosophical Issues in Harry Potter". It had its start at "Imagining Better: Philosophical Issues in Harry Potter Potter," a conference organized by Carrie-Ann Biondi at Marymount Manhattan College on October 29, 2011. (link to information about that conference). The paper I presented at this conference is a much expanded paper that I gave at Tufts University in 2008. The published version was further revised and expanded from the Marymount Manhatthan conference.
Here is a link to the table of contents for all the articles in this special issue: http://www.reasonpapers.com/archives/ (Scroll to Issue 34, No. 1 June 2012).
