Summary
"The Ultimate Harry Potter: Hogwarts for Muggles, is a fresh and distinctive report on the great ideas in the series. All the authors of these chapters have had the advantage of thinking through their chosen issues, and writing up their conclusions after the entire Potter storyline was complete, and Rowling had even had her say in public about things that never made it into the pages of the official texts. The philosophers and other top Harry Potter experts gathered together here offer new voices and new perspectives on many of the most important ideas that come up in the books--some of which can be genuinely life changing. Reading this book will be like putting on a Philosophical De-Coder Ring. It will show you vital aspects of the deepest story that lies behind these famous stories"--
