"An in-depth look at the philosophical issues behind HBO's Game of Thrones television series and the books that inspired itGeorge R.R. Martin's New York Times bestselling epic fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the HBO television show adapted from it, have earned critical acclaim and inspired fanatic devotion.

Game of Thrones and Philosophy takes a philosophical approach at Westeros and all of the characters inhabiting it. Although, I have never any of the books but have watched all three seasons of Game of Thrones, I did enjoyed this book. I love looking at concepts in many different ways and finding different interpretations. It makes me wonder if George R.R. Martin give this much thought to his multifaceted characters and intricate world.

I also liked learning about different key terms in philosophy lie metaphysics, metaphysical fatalism, authenticity and freedom, moral relativism and cultural relativism, moral luck and resultant luck, moral evil and natural evil, and game theory. When Game of Thrones comes back next year, I'm going to look at the characters in a different light. ( )
