Commence chin stroking: New book mixes Zelda and Philosophy

Zelda fan Luke Cuddy was so inspired by his favorite franchise that he went one step further than scribbling down some fan-fiction: he actually compiled a book on Zelda, tied it in with his knowledge of pop philosophy, and found a publisher for it.

Okay, so it's probably not going to be Sartre or anything, but if you do purchase this when it releases on November 28th, you'll be able to ponder such musings as:
  • How does the gamer experience the game?
  • Does Link have a will, or do gamers project their wills onto him?
  • How does time function?
  • Can Hyrule be seen as an ideal society?
  • Can the game be enjoyable without winning?
Deeeeep, man. And it goes without saying that there's also the perennial gamer/pseud's favorite: is Zelda art?
