Is the Dude a bowling-loving stoner or a philosophical geniusliving the good life? Naturally, it's the latter, and The BigLebowski and Philosophy explains why. Enlisting the help ofgreat thinkers like Plato and Nietzsche, the book explores themovie's hidden philosophical layers, cultural reflection, andpolitical commentary. It also answers key questions, including: TheDude abides, but is abiding a virtue? Is the Dude an Americanizedversion of the Taoist way of life? How does The Big Lebowskiillustrate the Just War Theory? How does bowling help Donny,Walter, and the Dude oppose nihilism? Yes, the Dude is deep, and sois this book. Don't watch the movie--or go to LebowskiFest--without it.
