More About Mr. Monk and Philosophy by D. E. Wittkower
 
 
 
Overview
Neatly organized, "Mr. Monk and Philosophy" uses philosophy to uncover more about the brilliant obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk. With the guidance of history s greatest thinkers, readers learn who Monk really is, why he is the way he is, and what they can learn from him. Chapters address such topics as Mr. Monk s unique use of logic, how everyone uses their own phobias and idiosyncrasies to navigate a threatening world, and what Monk says about what it means to be a hero (albeit a flawed one). Monk's relationships receive special attention: his dedication to his late wife, Trudy, teaches us about romantic partnership, while his relationships with Sharona and Natalie reveal the importance of friendship in dealing with illness, death, and tragedy."
