Rick, Lori, Shane, Carl, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne - human survivors of a zombie apocalypse - dont know much about philosophy, but philosophical ideas continue to shamble on through their world, and theres no excape from them. Guns, chainsaws, and machetes are not enough for survival: humans also need agreement on rules of conduct. Can equality or fairness have any place in the post-apocalyptic world? Do theft or even assault and murder become okay under desperate circumstances? The epic story of The Walking Dead focuses on the individual, social, and moral consequences of survival in a world overrun by zombies.
