Iron Man and Philosophy: Facing the Stark Reality (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series)
Iron Man and Philosophy: Facing the Stark Reality (The Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series)
The first look at the philosophy behind the Iron Man comics and movies, timed for the release of Iron Man 2 in March 2010
On the surface, Iron Man appears to be a straightforward superhero, another rich guy fighting crime with fancy gadgets. But beneath the shiny armor and flashy technology lies Tony Stark, brilliant inventor and eccentric playboy, struggling to balance his desires, addictions, and relationships with his duties as the Armored Avenger. Iron Man and Philosophy explores the many philosophical issues that emerge from the essential conflicts found in the decades of Iron Man stories in comics and movies. What kind of moral compass does Tony Stark have? Is Iron Man responsible for the death of Captain America after the Marvel Universe “Civil War”? Should people like Stark run the world? How does Tony’s alcoholism impact his performance as Iron Man, and what does it say about moral character? Ultimately, what can Iron Man teach us about the role of technology in society?
As absorbing as Iron Man comic books and movies, Iron Man and Philosophy:
Gives you a new perspective on Iron Man characters, story lines, and themes
Shows what philosophical heavy hitters such as Aristotle, Locke, and Heidegger can teach us about Tony Stark/Iron Man
Considers issues such as addiction, personal responsibility, the use of technology, and the role of government
Whether you've been reading the comic books for years or have gotten into Iron Man through the movies, Iron Man and Philosophy is a must-have companion for every fan.

Leaving. The first few days of every relationship that’s spent oceans apart is a strange event. You begin by breaking all your assumptions down and then trying to build them back up again; if you can’t, then it’s over. All the details of the person you think you know are now in front of you. They arrive so suddenly that it even causes you to question yourself; who are you. You feel as a stranger does. In the morning, she and I dragged everything we had with us down to the street and waited for a cab. It didn’t take long. The driver parked in the side alley where we loaded what we could into the trunk. The rest went onto the passenger seat. “Where to?” the cab driver said. “The train station,” she said. The driver was an older middle aged man. He’d glance back every so often to talk to us. We were keeping track of all the cab driver personalities; I told her maybe we’d be able to write a story about it someday. We were full of ideas. This and that. It must have seemed strange to the cab driver that I barely said a word. And the only things I said, were all in English. I realized that in Asia, I would always be displaced and at the mercy of others. Somewhat helpless. “Where are you from?,” he asked her. “Hong Kong.” “And your friend?” “America.” I stared at the streets outside the window. They were the same as those in Hong Kong though less dense. People moved slower, traffic less compact, and the pace more at ease. It was the long vertical storefront signs and gray humidity that made me think of Hong Kong and this familiar conversation; I often took the cab with her family. This or that cousin’s place. I always thought I had put that place behind me, that I’d never go back there, not even in imagination, but here I was thinking about it again. Taipei passed by in the same loop that we had been seeing during the past two days. When we arrived at the station, I was the one who had to wake her up this time. Though we told ourselves we’d play it day by day, we spent all of last night trying to find a room. Since it was the weekend and our next destination was a coastal resort town, everything was booked. “The Hong Kongers are coming down for Easter Holiday. That’s why,” she said. We browsed through photos of stark white buildings sitting along the edge of the coastline and verandas with clean wooden chairs and umbrella canopies in the sunlight. Our plan was to travel along the eastern coast where it was less populated, more wilderness, more quiet. “There’s got to be something,” I said. At around two in the morning, we found one. It was a block away from the beach and cheap. It had a room available on the second floor with a view that looked out onto the street. In the photo, thick orange drapes cast a warm glow into the room. We reminded ourselves that we’d call them in the morning. It was late and we were too tired to do anything else. “Are you feeling better?” I said to her as we laid in bed. After what happened earlier in the night, her mood seemed better. This had the effect of of making less anxious. During our walk afterdinner, I noticed that she had smiled more than all the hours in the past two days combined. And for at a time at least, was outwardly happy to be next to me. “Much better,” she said. I hoped that we were settling in. This is why we needed to leave the city. Too many ghosts around — hers and mine. The Taipei Rail Station was full of people people transiting through its wide open space. Among the city’s ultra modern sky scrapers, the building stood out and was older than I had imagined. We stood at the center of the crowd and watched the white characters manually clack in and out on the manual schedule board. We were going to Hualien. There were two ways to get there, we could have taken the high speed rail or the train; we chose the train. “I don’t mind the extra time. Actually, I’d rather take our time and watch the scenery,” I said. The next one wouldn’t arrive until 11. It would be a two hour trip with only a few stops along the way. Neither of us had anything to eat or drink that entire morning. She wandered into the convenience store to get some food while I waited by our luggage. The crowd was mostly school kids in their athletic uniforms — blue and white track jackets and track pants. When she was alone, she tended to walk as if the people around her did not exist. I enjoyed being able to notice all these small details. Maybe it was all in my head. But so what. Our luggage — we were more suite for a trip out the country than city hoping across the country. Going up and down the stairs in rail stations. In and out of cabs. Block length walks to bus stops. I knew we’d wear ourselves out by the end. She came back with plastic bag full of snacks and drinks. “I wasn’t sure if you wanted red or green tea but it doesn’t matter. I got both. What were you looking it?” she said. “I wasn’t looking at anything,” I said, “Just waiting for you.” The city’s skyline desce
Chinese House
Chinese House
The Chinese House The North Walk path forms part of Thomas Anson's layout, and its original state was serpentine and gravelled with wide grass verges and flanking beds of shrubs and rare trees interspersed with antique sculpture. It leads to the Chinese House, completed in 1747 and probably the first of Thomas Anson's garden buildings. The design for the Chinese House was taken from the pencil sketches of Sir Piercy Brett, Admiral Anson's second-in-command on the Centurion. It must have been constructed shortly after the Admiral's return, making it one of the earliest buildings of Chinese influence in the country, a precursor of the Chinese 'Pavilion' at Kew. The watercolour by Moses Griffith, 1780, shows the outside of the Chinese House looking very similar to its present appearance but coloured pale blue and white. The colour scheme within survives, with its pale green canopy, gilt monkeys and alcoves with red lacquer fretwork and gilded details. The Chinese House was built on an island in an artificial canal, with a boathouse attached. It was reached by a pair of bridges of Chinese design. This arrangement was altered during the rerouting of the Sow after the flooding of 1795 which left the Chinese House standing on a little promontory with only one bridge, rebuilt in iron, leading to the newly made island. The bridge, painted a bright Chinese red, was erected in 1813 by Charles Heywood. In 1885 the contents of the Chinese House, the plaster ceiling, four painted mirror pictures, fret tables, rushbottom chairs and porcelain were removed to the house for safekeeping. The planting hereabouts in Thomas Anson's day included clumps oflarches, known as 'Indian Trees', but these have all disappeared. Nevertheless, the planting round the Chinese House is still deliberately oriental in feel, with tree peonies, bamboo, azaleas, Viburnum davidi, Osmanthus delavayi, Rodgersia aesculifolia, Ligustrum quihoui and Ligustrum lucidum.
