Interesting to see the re-release, I have an earlier edition from 2005 (with different cover). I imagine it has been done to piggy back off of ep VII. I do wonder what insights the extra 16 pages hold, maybe the meaning of the word "Ultimate" added to the title ;)

Definitely a good read.

It was part of a series that included Buffy, The Matrix, Star Trek & Lost, though after a quick Google it appears as though there are quite a lot more.

Hey Eng. This version is by a different publisher - so the content is all new :) (Both Open Court and Blackwell run a "Popular Culture and Philosophy" series, and there can sometimes be confusing double-ups like this for more popular franchises.) Our mandate was a little different too. While the older volume focused almost exclusively on the films, we were given free-reign to pull on any material from the wider EU (and that was a lot of fun!)

The book brings together a number of philosophers (and, in my case, philosophers-to-be) exploring different philosophical topics by using examples from the Star Wars universe. I'm not sure when we'll see it in brick-and-mortar retailers - but as of today, it's available for purchase from both Mighty Ape and Book Depository.

That is awesome, Dan!

Found this at New World Metro in Wellington this morning... Time magazine with BB-8 cover. Did not see R2-D2 variant cover. Only $ 6.40 for 18 pages of Star Wars

Both the Force Awakens Incredible Cross Sections and Visual Dictionary are now in stock at Mighty Ape. Just ordered both, and I expect they'll be showing up in local retailers in the next few days as well if they aren't there already!
