Book Synopsis The Jurassic Park dinosaurs were unleashed on the world in 1993. Just like the flock of Gallimimus swarming over the plains of Isla Nublar, the film took the world by storm, making it the highest grossing of its time. A popular toy line by Kenner was released along with the film, followed by many other products bearing the Jurassic Park logo and JP initials. Store shelves were filled with action figures, dinosaur models and hundreds of other products, from bedsheets to potato crisps. Between 1997 and 2015, three more Jurassic Park films were released, each with their own distinctive toys and collectibles, each time bigger, better and with more teeth. Jurassic Park Collectibles spares no expense in taking you back in time to the early 1990s for a nostalgic twenty-five year journey through the history of collecting Jurassic Park. About the Author Kristof Thijs has operated jurassictoys.net for more than 15 years.
Jurassic Park and Philosophy - (Popular Culture and Philosophy) by Nicolas Michaud & Jessica Watkins (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 288Genre: PhilosophySub-Genre: EssaysSeries Title: Popular Culture and PhilosophyFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Open CourtAge Range: AdultAuthor: Nicolas Michaud & Jessica WatkinsLanguage: English Book Synopsis Twenty-one philosophers investigate the implications of the Jurassic Park franchise for our lives, our values, and our future. Human beings live and thrive by modifying nature, but when do the risks of changing nature outweigh the likely benefits? If it's true that "Life will find a way," should we view any modified or newly reconstituted life as a hazard? The new scientific information we could gain by bringing back T. Rex or other dinosaurs is immense, but should we choose to let sleeping dinosaurs lie? And if we do bring them back by reconstituting them from ancient DNA, are they really what they were, or is something missing? How do the different forces -- human curiosity, profitability, and philanthropy -- interact to determine what actually happens in such cases? What moral standards should be applied to those who try to bring back lost worlds? The idea of bringing back the dead and the powerful is not limited to biological species. It also applies to bringing back old gods, old philosophies, old institutions, and old myths. If revived and once again let loose to walk the Earth, these too may turn out to be more dangerous than we bargained for. About the Author Nicolas Michaud is an assistant professor of philosophy at Florida State College, Jacksonville, and the editor of Frankenstein and Philosophy. Jessica Watkins is a contributor to Ender's Game and Philosophy. Both live in Jacksonville, FL.
