Summary Acknowledgments Clash of the Archetypes 1. Avengers Dissemble! Civil War! Red vs. Blue or Both Simply Leviathan Green? Which one is superior--as a hero, as a role model, or as a personification of American virtue? Philosophers who take different sides come together in Iron Man versus Captain America to debate these issues and arrive at a deeper understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these iconic characters. The discussion ranges over politics, religion, ethics, psychology, and metaphysics.
John Altmann argues that Captain America's thoughtful patriotism, is superior to Iron Man's individualist-cosmopolitanism. Matthew William Brake also votes for Cap, maintaining that it's his ability to believe in the impossible that makes him a hero, and in the end, he is vindicated. Cole Bowman investigates the nature of friendship within the Avengers team, focusing predominantly on the political and social implications of each side of the Civil War as the Avengers are forced to choose between Stark and Rogers.
According to Derrida's Politics of Friendship, Cap is the better friend, but that doesn't make him the winner! Aron Ericson's chapter tracks our heroes' journeys in the movies, culminating with Civil War, where the original attitudes of Tony trusts only himself and Steve trusts "the system" are inverted. But Maxwell Henderson contends that if we dig deeper into the true heart of the Marvel Civil War, it isn't really about security or privacy but more about utilitarianism--what's best for everybody. Henderson explains why Iron Man was wrong about what was best for everybody and discloses what the philosopher Derek Parfit has to say about evaluating society from this perspective.
Daniel Malloy explains that while both Captain America and Iron Man have faced setbacks, only Iron Man has failed at being a hero--and that makes him the better hero! In his other chapter, Malloy shows that where Iron Man trusts technology and systems, Captain America trusts people. Jacob Thomas May explores loss from the two heroes' points of view and explains why the more tragic losses suffered by Stark clearly make him the better hero and the better person. Louis Melancon unpacks how Captain America and Iron Man each embodies key facets of America attempts to wage wars: through attrition and the prophylactic of technology; neither satisfactorily resolves conflict and the cycle of violence continues.
Clara Nisley tests Captain America and Iron Man's moral obligations to the Avengers and their shared relationship, establishing Captain America's associative obligations that do not extend to the arbitration and protection of humans that Iron Man advocates.

Fernando Pagnoni Berns considers that while Iron Man is too much attached to his time and the thinking that comes with it , Captain America embraces-historical values, and thinks that there are such things as intrinsic human dignity and rights--an ethical imperative. Christophe Porot claims that the true difference between Captain America and Iron Man stems from the different ways they extend their minds. Cap extends his mind socially while Stark extends his through technology. Heidi Samuelson argues that the true American spirit isn't standing up to bullies, but comes out of the self-interested traditions of liberal capitalism, which is why billionaire, former-arms-industry-giant Tony Stark is ultimately a more appropriate American symbol than Steve Rogers.
By contrast, Jeffrey Ewing shows that the core of Captain America: Civil War centers on the challenge superpowers impose on state sovereignty and the monopoly of coercion it implies. Nicol Smith finds that Cap and Shell-Head's clash during the Civil War does not necessarily boil down to the issue of freedom vs.
James Holt looks into the nature of God within Captain America's world and how much this draws on the "previous life" of Captain Steve Rogers. Holt's inquiry focuses on the God of Moses in the burning bush, as contrasted with David Hume's understanding of religion. Gerald Browning examines our two heroes in a comparison with the Greek gods Hephaestus and Hercules. Christopher Ketcham supposes that, with the yellow bustard wreaking havoc on Earth, God asks Thomas Aquinas to use his logical process from Summa Theologica to figure which one of the two superheroes would be better at fixing an economic meltdown, and which one would be better at preventing a war.
Rob Luzecky and Charlene Elsby argue that gods cannot be heroes, and therefore that the god-like members of the Avengers Iron Man, with a god's intelligence; Thor, with a god's strength, and the Hulk, with a god's wrath are not true heroes in the same sense as Captain America. Cap is like Albert Camus's Sisyphus, heroic in the way that he rallies against abstract entities like the gods and the government. I76 I Available. Jahrhundert .

Digital: streaming video file. Luxury : poems . Selections Schultz, Philip, author. First edition. At once philosophical and droll, Schultz explores life's luxuries and challenges with masterly precision. Luxury takes its name from the center poem, which has an ironic ring next to Schultz's Pulitzer Prize-winning collection Failure. The poem is a beautiful exploration of the pull toward life as Schultz examines the question of suicide, intimately probing a familial pull toward that darkness and weaving in the philosophy of Albert Camus and the voices and legacies of Paul Celan and Ernest Hemingway.
Using humor, irony, and celebration as ballast against the book's darker forces, Luxury explores the comfort and sustenance of life, the bittersweet clarity of aging, and the anxiety of existence. From "Greed": Happiness, I used to think, was a necessary illusion. Now I think it's just precious moments of relief. C A6 Unknown. Moore, Lindsey, author. Description Book — vi, pages ; 24 cm. Writing Palestinian Lives II.
Lindsey Moore brings together canonical and less familiar Arab novels and memoirs from the last half century to consider colonial continuities and consequences. Literary narratives are shown to oppose repressive versions of nationalism and to track desire lines toward more hospitable nations. The literatures discussed in this book enable a deeper historical understanding of twenty-first century Arab uprisings and their aftermaths. The book analyzes four rich sites of literary production: Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, and Palestine.

Chapter One contrasts Egyptian literary representations of popular revolt with official revolutionary discourse. Chapter Two addresses the enduring legacy of anti-colonial violence in Algeria and the place of Albert Camus in its literature. Chapter Three uses narratives of gender violence on the Beirut front line to reveal the divisibility and intersectional identity politics of postcolonial nation-states. Chapter Four emphasizes ways in which Palestinian memoirs insist upon remembering towards a postcolonial future.
It is an indispensable volume for students and scholars of Postcolonial, Arab, and World literatures. M63 Unknown. Narrative faith : Dostoevsky, Camus, and Singer .

Stromberg, David, author. The study describes a literary petite histoire that problematizes faith in two ways--both in the themes presented in the story, and the strategies used to tell that story--leading readers to doubt the narrators and their narratives. The two postwar novelists share parallel preoccupations with Dostoevsky's art and similar personal philosophies, while their works constitute two literary responses to the cataclysm of the Second World War--extending questions of faith into the current era.
The book's last section looks beyond narrative inquiry to consider themes of confession and revision that appear in all three novels and open onto horizons beyond faith and doubt--to hope. Z7 R Available. The Norton anthology of world literature .
