Tyler Shores visits Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters to present "Heroes and Philosophy," the first book concerning the philosophy behind "Heroes," one of TV's most popular shows. When ordinary individuals from around the world inexplicably develop superhuman abilities, they question who they are, struggle to cope with new responsibilities, and decide whether to use their new power for good or for evil. Every episode of Tim Kring's hit TV show "Heroes" is a philosophical quandary. "Heroes and Philosophy" is the first book to analyze how philosophy makes this show so compelling. It lets you examine questions crucial to our existence as thinking, rational beings. Is the Company evil, or good? Does Hiro really have a destiny? Do we? Is it okay to lie in order to hide your powers or save the world? "Heroes and Philosophy" offers answers to these and other intriguing questions.
