"A stimulating, scholarly work. The Philosophy of Tim Burton is an important book that will serve as a major contribution to the growing literature on film and philosophy." -- Shai Biderman, coeditor of The Philosophy of David Lynch

""Philosophical reflection can occur in many modes and forms. In fact, it does not even need to appear as philosophy. This stimulating collection presents a wide variety of explorations of the philosophical importance of Tim Burton's work. They show that the 'high' themes of philosophy around which the book revolves can be effectively explored in the unconventional 'popular culture' ways that mark and inform Burton's films. These essays integrate theoretical concerns with a close interpretive attention to concrete and vital detail."--Robert E. Innis, University of Massachusetts Lowell" --
""The metaphysics of personal identity, the subversive potential of horror, and the aesthetic resonance of the uncanny all can be found in Tim Burton's stylistically diverse works. These lively essays examine some unexpected philosophical ideas in his movies, making us realize how dramatic theoretical issues can become when they are crafted within narrative, dialogue, and filmic strategies."--Carolyn Korsmeyer, Philosophy Department, University at Buffalo" --
"[...] As a fan of Burton films, and an avid philosopher in my spare time, I considered this collection enlightening [....]" -- Film Matters
