Description

Serial Killers - Philosophy for Everyone investigates our profound interest in mass-murderers. Exploring existential, ethical, and political questions through an examination of real and fictional serial killers, philosophy comes alive here via an exploration of grisly death. This book:

  • Presents new philosophical theories about serial killing, and relates new research in cognitive science to the minds of serial killers
  • Includes a philosophical look at real serial killers, such as Ian Brady, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and the Zodiac killer, as well as fictional serial killers, such as Dexter and Hannibal Lecter
  • Offers a new phenomenological examination of the writings of the Zodiac Killer
  • Contains an account of the disappearance of one of Ted Bundy's victims, submitted by the organization Families and Friends of Missing Persons and Violent Crime Victims
  • Integrates the insights of philosophers, academics, crime writers, and police officers
