Our fifth session in year two of the series focuses on Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game series, beginning with Ender’s Game in 1985 and continuing to the fourth novel, Children of the Mind in 1996. We will be discussing the narrative world he created in that series, and selected main philosophical themes featured in those works.
I’ll post the video-recording of the talk and the handouts provided here the week after the talk, which will take place on Thursday, May 11, 7:00 PM at the Brookfield Public Library. I’ll also be building this page out quite a bit more in the coming weeks.
The philosophical themes I plan to focus upon during the talk are:
The Ender’s Game Series
For those who would like to purchase or otherwise acquire the books, here are some Amazon links to them.
Links and Resources of Interest
The discussion will be drawn primarily from the novels, but there are a number of online resources that may be of interest for those reading Card’s works. Here are some that I think particularly worth taking a look at – and after the session, there may be more to post, since participants often bring up those they found worthwhile as well.
