    ITEM#: 14394577

    Philip Zhai has degrees in both philosophy (Ph.D) and engineering (B.S.), and is a professor of philosophy at Muhlenberg College. He is the author of The Radical Choice and Moral Theory (Kluwer).
    Philip Zhai embarks upon a daring adventure in the world of virtual reality. Arguing that whatever reasons we have for justifying the materiality of the actual world are equally valid for justifying the materiality of the virtual world once we are immersed in it. Zhai asserts that the only important difference between the actual and the virtual world is that we are cocreators of the latter: Gods 'R Us.
