Overview

University Frank Herbert's Dune saga, the most widely read science-fiction story of all time and of all time to come, presents us with a cosmos in which fanaticism knows no mercy and history is made by the interplay of ruthless conspiracies.

What happens when genetic manipulation creates a godlike messiah? Must the overthrow of a brutal dictatorship generate more problems than it solves? Does our reliance on valuable resources--oil or addictive spice--place us at the mercy of those who can destroy those resources? Can we resurrect the dead by rebuilding persons from a few of their bodily cells?

Dune and Philosophy ambushes the Duniverse from all directions. Those anxiously admired or fondly hated characters--Paul Atreides, Baron Vladimir Harkkonen, Duncan Idaho, The God-Emperor Leto II, the Bene Gesserit witches--speak once more in the fearless philosophical sifting of life's timeless questions.
