Alice in Wonderland & Philosophy: Coming Soon!

Alice in Wonderland & Philosophy

The book’s set to be released next month, in time for the exciting new Alice in Wonderland movie coming out on March 5, 2010. Mark your calendars!

Who isn’t at least a little curious to see what a Tim Burton-version of Alice in Wonderland is going to look like? Here’s the trailer for a sneak preview:

Written in 1865 by Lewis Carroll (aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson),  the origins of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can be traced back to the halls of Christ Church at Oxford.

[Random Fun Fact]: Many Alice in Wonderland fans will remember when Alice finds that mysterious bottle labelled DRINK ME, which causes her to grow to enormous proportion, and then shrink to a tiny size. But did you know that there’s even a known medical condition (“Alice in Wonderland syndrome“) describing such hallucinatory and distorted changes of  size perception?

(Hope to add a new entry on Alice in Wonderland trivia, folklore, and real-life pictures next time!)
