The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy: Hogwarts for Muggles (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Book 22) – William Irwin, Gregory Bassham – 13.01.22

I don’t often like this kind of ‘Pop science’ book, but this one was on a 99p deal and I love Harry Potter so I gave it a go. Hmmm. It seems to me that philosophy is just either stating the bleeding obvious in a really longwinded way, or talking total nonsense in a really longwinded way. Still, I was reminded of a few things from Harry Potter that I’d forgotten about, which was nice, although I thought some of the HP references or puns were too contrived or cutesy.

If you like that kind of thing, then you’ll probably like this.
