Dans cet essai, le sociologue et philosophe américain George Marshall propose une nouvelle approche à l'une des plus épineuses questions de notre temps : alors que le réchauffement climatique se manifeste par un nombre croissant de signaux, comment se fait-il que nous puissions encore ignorer son impact sur notre planète ? Il a découvert que nos valeurs, nos opinions, nos préjugés ont leur vie propre. Par le biais d'histoires vécues et sur la base de longues années de recherches, Marshall soutient que ce qui nous amène à nier notre responsabilité dans les changements climatiques repose sur la manière dont nos cerveaux sont formatés. Après avoir assimilé ce qui stimule et menace notre intellect et nos motivations, l'auteur nous amène à envisager le changement climatique comme un problème soluble.

Wonder Woman. Asterix the Gaul. Watchmen. These popular comics, and many others, use classical sources, narrative patterns, and references to enrich their imaginative worlds and deepen the stories they present. This volume explores that rich interaction. Son of Classics and Comics presents thirteen original studies of representations of the ancient world in the medium of comics. Building on the foundation established by their groundbreaking Classics and Comics (2011), George Kovacs and C. W. Marshall have gathered a wide range of essays with a new, global perspective. Chapters are helpfully grouped to facilitate classroom use, with sections on receptions of Homer, on manga, on Asterix, and on the sense of a classic in the modern world. All Greek and Latin passages are translated. Lavishly illustrated, the volume significantly widens the range of available studies on the reception of the Greek and Roman worlds in comics, and deepens our understanding of comics as a literary medium. Son of Classics and Comics will appeal to students and scholars of classical reception as well as comics fans.
