Editorial Reviews

Review

Bateman's Imaginary Games may just do for videogames what Noel Carroll's The Philosophy of Horror did for scary books and movies... Bateman's fluency in the relevant philosophical debates and history of thinking about games is both enviable and a pleasure to behold.
- Jon Cogburn, Director of Philosophy, LSU Department of Philosophy


In this well-researched book Chris Bateman explores the ambiguous territory between the fictional and the real, and slays some dragons hiding therein. Highly recommended. 
- Ernest Adams, Founder of the International Game Developers' Association


A wonderfully refreshing and inventive look at games of many kinds, but especially digital games. It is seriously philosophical, but Bateman, a professional game designer, draws on a huge variety of resources far beyond the writings of academic philosophers - fascinating and fun!
- Kendall Walton, Professor of Philosophy, University of Michigan

About the Author

Acclaimed game designer, philosopher and author Chris Bateman is an expert on play and games, and undertakes philosophical investigations in a spirit of open-minded enquiry.
