I've been reading Star Trek and Philosophy: The Wrath of Kant and I've come to a disturbing conclusion.

They don't talk about the Mirror!verse. At all. The episodes are listed in the back of the book, but not once did they even come close to talking about them...

They talked about Eugenics (new ideas for Tarsus Untitled, btb), Data, Spock (and Vulcans), Picard, Bashir (just for you [livejournal.com profile] amine_eyes ), and the BORG. But not Mirrorverse...

That confused me because part of philosophy as I've learned it is thinking about everything at some point or another. And they had an Ancient Greek philosophy professor from South Bend, IN on the writing team, which should have helped at least a little in figuring out the philosophy behind how the Empire came to be from Ancient times, seeing as how the entire governmental and public actions somehow didn't really change from back then. It would be a fascinating thing to work out, honestly, and I wouldn't mind pursuing it... but I haven't the knowledge or capabilities...

and my rant is over, since there's not much I can do about it...
