I’ve just plowed through “traitor” and “destinys way” for the millionth time and was looking for a list of books that are heavy in force philosophy the way these two are. I’ve read almost everything in novel form but have been pretty lax about comics, so what would everyone’s list be, in any medium, for must read force pholosophy heavy books/comics/whatever?

Off the top of my head, you should give the Darth Bane Trilogy a try if you haven't already. They're some of the best books in the EU imo

It's told from a Sith's perspective and Darth Bane is pretty much an evil Martin Luther, so there's a fair amount of Force philosophy stuff.

Lol that may be the most intriguing description of Bane I've ever seen.

lol @ Reep , as well.

The NJO books were the only ones that really get into the metaphysics of The Force.

I presume that the comic series about the first Jedi covers that. I know that the novel based on that does get into it a little bit, and I thought that was interesting. Off the top of my head I can't remember the names.

for non narrative, encyclopedic books, Jedi Vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to The Force, and Star Wars: The Jedi Path extensively covers the Jedi philosophy; and it's counterpart Book of the Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side. That is of course Legends Canon.

For non canon, the old West End Games Star Wars RPG had source books for the Sith and Jedi talking about all the different Force techniques and there was lore too.

For Earthling philosophy examined through the fictional media of SW there is Star Wars and Philosophy.

and best of all, of course, our thread here for the Philosophy of the Force: www.eucantina.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=900&highlight=force+philosophy
