Interested in learning more about 17th-century philosophy, but from a graphic novel? Father-son duo Steven Nadler, a professor of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, and Ben Nadler, an illustrator, co-authored Heretics!—a graphic novel that explains the history of philosophy during this period. If you need a quick brush-up or fun introduction to Copernicanism or René Descartes's dualism, the Nadlers have made 17th-century scholarship accessible to a broad audience.

Check out a chapter from Heretics! (courtesy of The Atlantic) here:
